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?

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?
