If the computer still cannot detect the device, open control panel, click scanner and camera, and then click add device.'' When i do this, it doesnt work. the acer eye webcam is not there. what do i do? \015

Answers :

Ok this problem is caused by the wrong drive installed for the Crystal Eye Web cam.
\015\012
\015\012even thoguh the camera shows that it is installed, the application looks for a specific one for the model you have. Unfortunatly Acer used 3 models of the camera without telling you which you have and calls all of them "crystal eye web cam"
\015\012
\015\012go to acer.com select their support section and download all driver and applications available for the camera. you will need to try then 1 at a time til you get the one that works for your system
