I have notebook Packard bell, webcam not integrated, I just bought a webcam 'PHILIPS SPC 900NC' but it is not recognized on my notebook. I have also tried another webcam, but the latter works.

Hi ,

I got the same problem when i change webcam..

Perhaps your operation system does not have the appropriate drivers to perform installation of device.

try downloading it from below link

make the installation of the driver and plug the webcam it should be your solution

Firstly I ask you to install the installation driver and then check out your usb ports and verify it on another computer. If it doesn't work, try to download the driver from the company's website. It is recommended to use windows XP for Philips webcam as windows XP is structured for web and IM. Thanks in advance
Simple solution ....... at least it worked flawlessly for me.

It seems that I spent more than a couple of days trying to resolve this one, including updating "repairing" WindowsXP and a long phone call to Logitech Tech support, all to no avail.

The simple solution is to uninstall any and all previously installed Logitech drivers (even going into your registry and deleting all relating registry entries pertaining to your Logitech Webcam. Then with your Webcam plugged into your USB port as an unrecognized USB device, do a Windows update. Viola, your problem should be solved.

My was with the installation of driver v11.80.1048.0 for my Logitech WebCam Communicate STX.

I'm now clean of any extraneous Webcam software, and my Webcam works "flawlessly".

My advice is to stick with WindowsXP drivers, and not anything that would be downloaded separately.

its saying its detected
