WebCam Not recognised
Posted on 2010-09-10
I recently purchased a Bush Webcam from Argos. The model is 1.3MP DC-7120.
I have a Windows 7 Home Premium - 64 bit, 12 Gig ram, Intel Core i7 3.41 Ghz
The problem I have is that when I plug it into my USB slot, Windows doesn't find it. I have installed the drivers that came with it, and it finds it, but after a few minutes the device disconnects, and you can no longer see it in the Devices area. I have tried several different USB ports, that are working with other devices. It comes with AmCAP which is supposed to show the video, but when I load it, it just says "Sorry you have no video capture hardware"
So my question is, why did it work for a bit then not at all? I don't really want to have to take it back, but I will if I cannot resolve. Any ideas?
