I don't think that your camera is supported under Windows 8

Hi Airbander,

Please have a look at Drivers and software - ThinkPad Edge E525.

Unfortunately the specific camera driver mentioned on the official Lenovo downloads page does not appear to support Windows 8!

Every Windows OS with the exception of W8 appears to be supported!

I hope that you are successful regardless of the above information.

Kind Regards,
