Windows 7: Problem with Microsfot LifeCam VX 6000 on Windows 7 x64

Problem with Microsfot LifeCam VX 6000 on Windows 7 x64

Hello people. I am new Here and first of all I want to say Hello!

Well, two days ago I bought the Microsoft LifeCam Vx 6000 and I installed it over Windows 7 64 bits version. The cam Works but the quality image is... very granulated. It's not clear. I tried to change with all webcam Resolutions but always seems granulated.

Here is an example of how my webcam does look: Imageshack - 20091230233037436

and the another problem is.. When I use the option of "Show your webcam to a friend" in Windows Live Messenger the Webcam Image is very lagged like if my internet connection was slow.. but I have a 3 MB internet connection. If I use the "Video Call" option, the Webcam Image looks just fine.

I am using the LifeCam 3.0 Drivers for Windows 7.

I am sorry, When I said "Granulated" I really meant "Grainy". My native language is not english

Anyone have any Idea of what could I do?

I had exactly the same problems with the M/S VX6000. Eventually gave up and went to a logitech video cam and had no problems since. I was using the equipment for video calls and I also found that M/S Live did not work too well. When I switched to using Skype everything was good.
