This is the third webcam I've gotten. The first one was a Logitech c310, a real beauty. But it didn't show a picture when I clicked on capture; it said "capture fail". I could hear myself when I tested out the audio in settings but no picture. I brought it back and exchanged it for the same one because I thought it was defective..but the one I'd gotten after wards had the same problem! So I exchanged that one for a gigaware 2 mega pixel. :sigh: (sighs)And still nada. I installed all the software correctly and when I go to hit capture, it says that it might be in use by another program or it might not be installed properly and to check it again... I don't know what to do anymore! I'm kinda bummed. Someone told me go to my control panel check out my camera settings to see if the camera was working properly, and to check the device manager to see if it's running. So I did. When the installation wizard popped up, asking where I'd like to copy the manufacturers files from, I typed in Drive E and a little window popped up saying "The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure its designed to work with Windows for 32-bit systems". I dont know what that means. I feel like crying lol. HELP! I'm going to test it out on another computer and see if it works. If all else fails I might end up selling it and just buying a new laptop. But If anyone can help please share any thoughts and opinions I'll appreciate it greatly. Thanks! =]

When you type "drive E:" that is not enough. You've also got to type the full path to the correct folder on the CD which contains the driver files for your version of Windows.

If you don't type the full path to the folder (not just D:), Windows won't be able to find the driver files.
