Life Frame Built-in Camera Error Message - Camera In Use


Everytime i try and use life frame to take picture or yahoo webcam, or anything on my computer than will use the built in camera, i get an error message that says "camera in use" or something other than that. I use and asus laptop that runs windows 7. I think the problem arose after i upgraded my o. S. To windows 7 from windows vista. My computer is 64-bit. I think i may need to upgrade a driver for it, but i dont have any messages telling me that i need to update. So what is going on and how can i fix this problem a. S. P. ?

Computer Cannot Read Camera

I have a sony laptop (vaio pcg-6hcp) running xp professional and a fji fnepix a500 camera. All used to work fine though the camera is not great! The camera still links to other computers ok. Now when i try to read the camera on laptop an error message comes up' g:dcim not accessible. Incorrect function" i presume this relates to some bug that has crept into the laptop setup since it used to work ok but am not aware of any changes made at the time this fault started up.

Have tried reinstalling the disc i had with camera, but i couldn't tell if this had a driver file on it-just seemed to install some photo handling software and nothing changed. Anyone any thoughts on where to look for bugs or what files might be worth seeking out and reinstalling?

Photos Will Not Rotate After Importing From Camera

Photos will not rotate when i copy them from my camera to the computer, however when i open them up in photoshop or other photo editors, the photo is rotated to the correct position already. This problem gives me a different orientation using photo editors and a different orientation using the windows default picture viewer.

Photos taken on the camera are automatically rotated based on how i was holding the camera. Then when i put them on the computer (i don't use an import program, i just copy and paste) they are shown in the wrong orientation (usually vertical pictures are horizontal). Now i rotate them to fix them until i open them up and photoshop and my pictures are actually upright to begin with.

Basically i rotate photos when it is already rotated to the correct position. The problem is that windows vista and 7 always show the wrong preview. This is frustrating because i can't find the correct rotation. If i do ps my photos will always be in one orientation and then when using windows to preview images it's in another orientation. What's the problem? I noticed this happens on my friend's computers as well.

Canon Eos 40d Camera Not Recognised

I am hoping people here can help. I have been trying this all weekend with no success. I have a canon eos40d camera. It previously connected fine with xp, but now, not with win7 (32bit). I have installed the latest canon utilities (but according to them, they do not provide the drivers). They tell me that the camera should work just by connecting the camera to the computer by usb. When i do this, i encounter the error "driver not installed properly".

I have looked to see if it is recognized as a storage drive of sorts in my computer, but it does not appear there either. Canon tells me that the wia driver allows it to communicate with the computer. I have been looking for a win 7 wia driver to no avail. I have searched forums and the net for solutions to no avail. I have even read about changing the communication method to ptp or something in the camera's menu system. My camera does not have that option (or at least, i have not been able to find it).

Win 7 Crash When Disconnecting Usb Camera

Have noticed that several usb connected devices will crash the os if they are disconnected after use. The 'safely remove' option does not appear to prevent this. Problem was first noticed when transcribing video tapes using a roxio vhs connector, but have same issue with olympus camera connection. After use, if the usb cable is unplugged, the os crashes immediately - no bsod or error log entry. All the error log shows is that the machine was powered off incorrectly. Host machine is an acer with amd dual core processor. Issue does not occur with xp on same box.

Vaio Vgn-nw130j Motion Eye Camera Not Working

I upgraded from vista x64 to win 7 x64, everything went smooth except my motion eye camera. For some reason it stopped working, i have tried downloading the and installing the arcsoft web companion software that came with the laptop and also the new software and can't get the camera to work. In device manager the camera is not even listed as a imaging device, it shows as 5u876 device. I tried installing the ricoh 5u876 software for that device and still have the same problem.

I even tried downloading the driver pack for compatibility for windows 7 and also tried running everything in vista compatibility and nothing fixes the issue. I have searched through the forums and tried numerous fixes that other people suggested in other threads, but none of them have worked. If anyone has any other idea i would appreciate the help, my vaio model is a vgn-nw130j.

Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Microsoft Life Cinema Does Not Work

I've just bought the webcam microsoft life cinema and installed its software. It works capturing an excellent image with high quality. But when i try to use it with any other program (windows messenger, skype, movie maker, etc) it doesn't work. Windows messenger, for example, recognizes that there is a camera connected to the computer but the window that would had to show my image is completely white. First i thought it was about configuration, but if computer and camera were incompatible, the software would not work. Am i right? Please, help me. I'm enchanted about my camera, it must work.

Turning Off "fit To Frame"

When i want to print a picture, generally speaking, that is exactly what i want to do - print that picture , not just part of that picture. One would assume this would go without saying. To that end, i frequently find that i need to uncheck the "fit picture to frame" box in the photo printing wizard. In fact, i can't think of a single occasion (where it made a difference) on which i wanted it checked. If i wanted to crop the edges off, i'd do so, before trying to print it.

Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to turn this option off by default. I have to do it manually for every picture or group of related pictures. This is not a great hardship, but it is a fiddly and easily overlooked extra step that feels like it shouldn't be necessary.

Have i overlooked something, or is this just something i have to put up with (or disable the wizard altogether)? (Oh, and is it just me, or is the option also very poorly named? It sounds from the name like the exact opposite of what it is - i'd have guessed i would want it checked if i didn't want the edges cropped off, not if i did. )

Built In Webcam Not Working

I have an hp pavilion dv6565us. It came with vista home premium 32-bit, but i upgraded to windows 7 home premium 32-bit. And it's been working fine. But recently my built-in webcam stopped working. It's worked fine before with windows 7 and with the latest update, but after no changes to the os or anything it stopped working. Any program i use either doesn't acknowledge the webcam's presence or shows it as an option for an input device but doesn't work. I have done every solution i've found when searching similar problems, and none have worked.

I've done little things as to update and reinstall drivers, i've gone to my device manager and uninstalled and re-installed all the usb root hubs. I even updated the bios for my system. The only time it's shown up is when i go to devices and printers in the start menu. The weird thing is, it's shown up, disappeared from there, and shown up again. When it does show up, i go to properties and it says the device is functioning properly, which it's not. In the area where it says model number, it says unavailable. In the details section there is a whole list of properties.

Battery Life For Dell Inspiron T4300

I have a dell inspiron t4300. It has an option to select a power plan for saving energy on the laptop as well as on the battery. You can "click" the disable battery charger while working on your laptop at home. This option is supposed to save energy without giving up speed or power and prolongs the longevity of your system. Per the instructions, if you keep your computer plugged in all the time, this feature will stop the battery from charging until the next time you reboot your computer and your battery will continue to perform normally. Well, when i turn my laptop off at night and reboot in the morning, won't my battery be dead?

I also have a computer service that runs updates, checks for viruses and takes care of running my back-ups every night. I don't think this will affect my services with them, but what would happen if my computer is turned off and my battery is dead? If anyone has worked this feature of their laptop, please let me know if you're satisfied with the results.

Second Life - Your Video Card Drivers Are Not Installed Properly

''your video card drivers are not installed properly, are out of date or are for unsupported hardware'' this message keeps coming from secondlife.com only after i have registered this computer, using the product key and installed free trial of microsoft office for the next 3 months. During installation, windows kept saying that ''drive c has not enough space'' and demanded 'delete' old 'unused programs', i agreed, but there was never the question about hard disk drivers.

I have windows vista home premium for 3 years, (this page isn't available here in your web) , and since 19th of february2010, i'm reading all the 'advises', trying to 'restore', nothing helps. Last year the secondlife.com was installed easily and had high speed. I never experienced one single problem, the same computer, the same hardware, just suddenly become 'unsupported', i need windows just restore all my setting back, and stop deleting my settings and downloads. How can i restore hardware which was deleted by windows from my computer?

Does Win 7 Home Premium Have Office Application Built-in?

Currently, i have 2 desktops and 1 laptop all running xp home, sp2 with office 2000. I'm interested in upgrading to windows 7, but have a couple of questions that i cannot find answers to.

1- does windows 7 home premium have some type of"office" application built in? I'm primarily interested in "word, excell, powerpoint, and outlook express".

2- if i have to buy an additional "office" program, does office 2003 support download on multiple computers? I ask about 2003 because we have 2007 on our work computers andi'm tired of the problems with trying to view older versions of "office generated items". Atleast 2003 is compatible with older versions, or am i doing something wrong in the 2007 version?

3- is it possible, and how much of a pain is it, to move my 2000 outlook express emails, adress book, etc over to a new version?

4-what happened to the "family pack" of windows 7 that was supposed to come out? I can't find it, and it seems that it was discontinued.

5- if i have to buy a single licensed copy of windows 7, how will it interact with the other computers on my network still running xp home?

I'm very suspicious of upgrading, but i'm trying to upgrade my "home media files" so i can eventually be able to access them on an x-box 360, or ps3 to my entertainment center and tv.
