Help needed to get web camera going.
« on: December 15, 2007, 03:29:54 PM »
I've just got a web camera - an Advent ADE-A1 - and I,ve got it working on the computer - click MyComputer/Scanners and Cameras/USB Video Device - and up comes the picture.

I've got the plug-in installed on Mach3 Mill and Turn - but all I'm getting in "Unable to turn on camera" when I fire it up.
It doesn't, to me, seem to be pointing at the right driver, but I can't figure out how to change it.

Can anybody help???
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

After a morning of messing about, trying to alter the drivers, I got into it and discovered that the driver is  the one named in the Mach3 window - and so would appear to be correct

As I say the camera works on the computer - Mach3 doesn't seem to be able to connect to it - any help out there???
