Web Cam Issue

Yesterday my web cam was working properly, and uploading fine. This morning I went to my computer (as every morning, even before saying good morning to the wife) and the cam had stopped working. When I tried to get it running again, WD crashes.

Any Ideas?

is wd capturing the image for you?
try turning the power off the web cam…to reset it

And if WD is capturing the images for you. MAKE SURE that none of the software or utilities that came with the webcam are loading(look in the startup folder or using “msconfig” look for them in there also. You only want the drivers for the camera to be loaded, nothing else. And make sure whatever camera setup program you have, the settings in it, even though its not running, are the same ones you choose in WD.
