Re: Skype and Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720pHD

Dee here, asking for help in connecting the Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720pHD to Skype, using Windows XP.  I want to be able to use Skype and the Microsoft instructions say they are compatible.

Re: Skype and Microsoft LifeCam Cinema 720pHD

Dee here again, wondering if Microsoft actually allows a connection between the LifeCam Cinema 720pHD and Skype.  Skype apparently cannot find the LifeCam although I downloaded the disc with no problem.  Since I'm unable to download the extras suggested, I'm unable to use the full LifeCam Cinema program and unable to connect to Skype.  So, no visual communication.  Any suggestions?

Have you installed LifeCam Cinema Firmware Update?

Does anyone ever get a reply on this site?  Is this really a "help site?"

It looks like ruwim was trying to help you.   Did you bother to read his reply to you?  And, if so, what's your answer to his question?

How do I get to ruwim's reply?  I saw the name "ruwim" but clicking on it didn't get my reply.

Have you tried to connect this webcam to another USB port? Avoid using unpowered USB-hubs.
