Usb Camera Not Working In Win 7


I have a usb camera attached to the pc running windows 7. Windows 7 update installed vmicro usb driver for it automatically & since then "pc camera" shows up on devices & printer & applications like gmail & yahoo messenger shows the vmicro camera option in its options for video chats. But there is no video at all! A black screen is all what i see. If i install the vista drivers, video comes in for a few seconds & then i get a blue screen & windows restarts.

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.

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).

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?

On installing it for the first time, the driver installs failed. The driver it failed on was the ehome infrared receiver (usbcir). To the best of my knowledge, the device does not contain an ir device of any sort.

I inserted the same device in an xp machine and it worked fine. Have i:

(A) wasted my money, (b) encountered a known problem with a simple fix (do tell), or
(C) tripped over something nasty i don't want to know about (see a)?

Identify Usb 2.0 Cables / Test Usb Cable Speed

Is there a way to tell if a cable is usb 2. 0? Or better yet, is there a was to test usb tables to find their transfer rate?I have a huge supply of usb cables to go through. Some are clearly marked usb on the connector or on the wire itself. But most cables have no markings to indicate their spec. I've searched a lot and found no good and reliable way to test them. I've seen recommendations to try to use the cables to transfer large files and watch the speed. But that does not seem reliable and won't work since i have all sorts of different end connectors to test.

And i've seen some spec information such as there will not be a ferrite connector on 2. 0 cables. And 2. 0 cables won't be longer than 3m. But i am looking for something that will tell me definitively if the cables are 2. 0 spec. And better yet, what is the actual transfer speed since some cables are better than others. I would prefer some marking or physical characteristics on the cable that would tell the version. But i am open to (hopefully inexpensive) test equipment too. Some sort of terminator-like tester would be ideal.

Usb Flash Drive - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

I have tried 4 different usb flash drives from different manufacturers and my usb hard drive from western digital. Windows 7 recognizes it until i start transferring files. Then it can't find the drive. When i unplug it and plug it back in, i get a notification that the usb device is not recognized. After i restart the computer, it does the same thing all over again. I ran vista before windows 7 and never had this problem. I am very frustrated. I must have access to my flash & external drives or windows 7 is useless to me.

Plugging Usb Keyboard & Mouse Into Different Usb Ports

I have a usb keyboard and mouse. Recently, i had to relocate my computer, so the keyboard and mouse were unplugged. My question is: if i plug the keyboard and mouse back, but not into the original usb ports, will this cause windows 7 to create a new hardware profile, or any other registry changes as a result?

Usb Suspend:usb Device Not Entering Suspend

I purchased windows 7 as soon as it was available in stores. I installed it and after using it for a few days, i noticed that my usb devices weren't selectively suspending to save power like they were in the release candidate of windows 7. I left it alone 'till now. I just reinstalled windows 7, thinking it maybe some software or driver that i had installed that was causing this problem. So i didn't install any drivers or software and ran the power efficiency diagnostics report, and all of my usb devices have the error: usb suspend:usb device not entering suspend.

Can you please help me with this? If you need to know, i am using an asus m4a79 deluxe mobo.

Usb Connection

I am having trouble with a usb connection. This is what it says. One of the usb devices attache to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it this happens whenever i put in a flash-drive. Or even when i try to download pictures from my camera. I have 2 label printers and 2 printers connected to my computer. This didn't start happening until i got 1 of the  new printers. I have tried putting the flash drives on a different computer and it works just fine.

I have replaced all the cables with 2. 0. I took the computer to staples to ask them and when they connected it it was fine. So i don't know what else i can do. Only one of my label printers is a serial port, all others are usb. This is a desktop. I have tried even putting the flash-drive in the back of the computer in one of the empty ports but i get the same error. I hope i don't sound too stupid. It is driving me crazy. Can you help me?
