Webcam problem

  1. I recently recieved a webcam my family bought me out of the country. <br>
    When I plug in my webcam it makes the sound telling it knows I have put the webcam/microphone in.
    I have tried installing the software, but on the disk, nothing pops up.
    When I chose audio and video set up, only the audio shows it's there.
    All the writing is all in hebrew, so I have no idea what to do.

    With the webcam connected:

    Download and run Everest Home (it is free):

    Once you download it, click on it and let it install and then run it from the icon on your desktop.

    Click on the + sign beside 'Computer', then on 'Summary', then go to the VERY Top of the screen and click on 'report'.

    Note: the 'Very Top' isn't one line down, it means what it says.

    Cursor over 'quick report-summary' and then click on 'plain text' and then click on 'save to file' and change the 'save in' folder to 'Desktop' and then click 'Save'.

    Clear all your open windows and on the Desktop click on that 'report.txt' icon - this will open it in a text editor (probably Notepad) and then use your mouse to highlight ALL the 'debug' entries and delete them, then use your mouse to hilight all the remaining text then copy and paste it to here.

    For future reference: once you open Everest, click on file, preferences, report and uncheck the 'include debug information in the report' box. People rarely want to see that stuff.
