My logitec quick cam won't work in Vista?, I downloaded the latest drivers
but it still won't work? Keeps telling me "No camera detected" Although when
I installed the software, it recognized it when it told me to plug my camera
in?

Pete, i only installed the 'drivers' not all of logitechs software. My
webcam was plugged in, so as i rebooted Vista automatically detected that
some hardware was attached. I waited for the 'new hardware found' box to
appear and then selected for Vista to search (i wasn't connected to the
web). At this stage i put the Logitech CD into the CD-ROM. Vista did it's
search and then started installing the drivers.

I've tried everything, uninstalled the software, reinstalled! Everytime it
gets to the part for me to connect the camera, it seems to recognize it then
it goes to the search mode for the drivers, even goes to microsoft's site &
then says driver software installation failed? Thats as far as I can get?

I tried that but apparently this camera isn't supported? I uninstalled the
software & reinstalled, went to Logitec site & downloaded the updated driver
& installed it but it's a no go?

I have the same camera (Communicate STX, earned the same way). Version 10.0
(downloadable from Logitech) works in both XP and Vista (Vista RC1 series:
build 5600 and later) just fine (except that the camera's built-in mic
(which I don't use) does *not* work in Vista).

Mine is a V-UAP14 model, it's called the quickcam chat model? So apparently
something is different?

I have the 5000pro and during set up it found the mic but not the cam
I went to the device manager and manually updated the driver
I pointed it to the extracted folder from the newest down load I got from
Logitech

I downloaded the latest driver too & installed it to a folder on my desktop
but when I tried to manually update the driver, & point it to the driver
folder it says no device drivers found for this hardware?

Drew, I finally got a reply from Logitec & they now have an update for the
quick cam. I installed it & it works.

I have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000.
When I installed Vista RC2 (both x86 and x64) drivers for the microphone were installed and worked
properly.
A few weeks ago Windows Update downloaded LOGICOOL drivers, and the camera started working in
Messenger.
I downloaded the Vista drivers and installed them. Logitech software and Messenger worked perfectly.
However, now everytime I boot into either Vista x86 or Vista x64, I get the Found New Hardware
dialogue, if I let it automatically install the drivers everything works again.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Logitech drivers, but I still get the Found New
Hardware dialogue every time I boot up.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can correct this?

I purchased a Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 and attempted to install on new Dell
desktop Vista Home Premium OS. After three install/uninstall cycles I
progressed as far as the microphone on the WebCam working. These install
cycles included clean installs with all antivirus/span/firewall disabled &
msconfig clean boot; install from Logitec web site & from the CD. In this
process, I had a Logitec tech support person advising me for about 3 hours
(continuous). The Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 will not work on my Vista
machine.

I installed this newly purchased Quickcam Pro on Windows XP desktop without
difficulty and the device is working fine.

After all this Logitec recommended I return the QuickCam Pro5000 to the
vendor; Logitec provided me with an authorization code to return the device.

Hopefully, Microsoft and Logitec will collaborate and find a solution to
this nonense.

I have the Logitech QuickCam Fushion going in Vista and it works fine - with
the newest drivers or without any drivers at all (just in Messenger).
