    I have purchased my shitty wondereye webcam managing to get it going in xp pro with terracam softare and when i have a convosation with it in msn or yahoo it suddenly freezes, so i have to restart the camera every so often. but a few days ago it froze my computer so i got very pissed off so i pulled the wondereye camera cable out of the usb and it just rebooted my computer in an instant and when i started xp back up it said "windows has just had a major error".

    So whats the go anyway.

    PS. I think i might get a decent logitech webcam cause my Strathfield Wondereye is just SSHHIITTT!!!

    Interesting, since this is the tip section: Are you telling us of a good way to mess up XP with the method you mentioned?

    Excellent tip, thanks, but I don't think it will work for all of us. If you want a solution to your problem, you might want to try getting an (updated)XP driver from that webcam manufacturer - sometimes they are a bit too anxious to release their crap asap and manage to release a decent driver on the third or fourth attempt.

    LOL, mess up xp (yeh of course...not)

    oh by the way Wondereye went broke and the company died in 1999.
    and the only software for the wondereye to work is Terracam software, i got 98 drivers for the cam though, damn XP compatability issues.

    Did bill gates do it to piss everyone off or make money off drivers. Stupid Microsoft

    Im sure many agree as DOS games dont work, and MANY other games dont work either, its just a bunch of shit, i hope the next windows there releasing will have 98 and xp compatabilitys put intogether so everything will work.

    Interesting though and very annoying too...

    ..You can run DOS games with 98 compatability mode, if you want. I find XP is far more stable when trying to run DOS games, anyway.



    Edited to add: Just right click on your program icon, hit Properties, and switch to the Compatibility tab.
    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    Just wondering.

    Why did you buy a cam from a company that had gone broke years ago, with no drivers for the operating system you were using. This seems like a strange purchasing policy to me. Did it really not work properly, wonder why.

    Are you actually a mentalist.

    It probably was the cheapest cam he could find.

    It's only a bargain if it works.

    I find your comments offensive, i have heard your comments on the matrix reload forum too.
    You should be VERY VERY asshamed

    This forum was for me to notify you of a webcam can reboot your computer while using it and pulling out the usb cable, not discussing weather YOUR a mentalist you jerk.

    I find you being MENTAL, not understanding this forums topic
