Windows 7: Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

Windows 7
Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000

Hi Everyone,

I know there are several other threads on this topic already but I have a unique problem. I can install LifeCam software fine sometimes but the driver never installs for the camera. The few times I get the LifeCam installed, it always just showed up as no camera connected. When I try to use Device Manager to "Update driver software", no matter what I try, the last screen always say, "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device." Then several lines down it says, " The extended attributes are inconsistent." Has anyone else discovered this problem? I would really appreciate your help! Thanks!

Hello Jbonnecroy,

Are you using the latest Lifecam 3.0 software drivers?

Software Download

If so, then you might see if this may help any.
