What version of Skype?  Click on Help > About Skype for the specific version number.
If you click on Tools > Options > Video settings, what appears in the Select webcam window?  If it's not your C270, if you click on the down arrow next to the Select webcam box does your C270 appear as a choice there?

Re: Skype does not recognize my webcam

I have an HP Elitebook 8460p with built in webcam.  The webcam is working with windows, but Skype does not recognize that there is a device. I have gone to tool and video settings.  There is not a drop down shown where I can selcect a webcam.  Is there a setting somewhere else that needs to be inchanged in order for Skype to see that I have a webcam.
