So I searched high and low for solutions on getting my sphere/orbit MP to work in win7 64. My specs are as follows: Core i7 2.66ghz EVGA x58 mobo 6gb ram ATI 4870 1GB Win7 was able to find the drivers online, but I immediately noticed that under skype->options->video it shows nothing but black. I'm able to move the camera around via the webcam settings but no video at all. Unless the webcam is broken but I have to verify that on another machine... I ended up uninstalling the drivers, and just downloaded on from the logitech site. I was able to get the installation going in vista compatibility mode, but once it gets to the part where it tells you to plugin your webcam it won't detect it at all. So whatever I skipped that part, but the device is "unknown device" under device manager. So I tried to manually update the drivers by pointing it to the folder I extracted all the files to, but it won't recognize a driver under that... this seemed to work for other people with logitech cams but didn't work for me. :/ So again I had win7 look for drivers online and the camera installed again. I then launched the quickcam utility app (again with vista compatibility) and now it tells me "webcam in use by another application". I did a fresh reboot and the same thing. I spent a good part of my weekend trying to figure this out. So I lay my problem to the rest of you folks. Hopefully someone can help me fix this.
