Won't work with Windows 7 64 bit OS

Summary: The title says it all. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit operating system running on an Intel i7 920 processor. Logitech's camera software will not install correctly. You can't get a picture at all. I spent over an hour on the phone with Logitech Support and also corresponded via emails. The net effect was no help. Their software gives Script Errors, Not Win32 application errors, and it thinks I am running an AMD 32 bit processor.
Summary: After following the exact procedures to install the webcam and upload the software, I had high hopes it would work. It does work affter you upload and reuplload and reupload the software every time you need to uuse it to make an internet call with video. I bought it to communicate with my daughter and granddaughter but have to spend to much time reuploading software to make it worth while as it is.
Pros: Nice picture when it works, which isn't very often.
Cons: Continually have to reload software every time you restart your machine to get it to work.
Summary: Logitech Webcam software corrupted my Windows XP installation. 6 hours later and I'm finally back up and running again. Needless to say this POS is going back !!! I never found out if the camera is good or if it even works at all.
Summary: "UPDATE"...Perhaps this review and the current update will help others, however, the original review was yesterday and now this update continues with my progress overnight...I did get the camera up and running and would change the rating to a 4 out of 5 stars but I cannot change the stars via this edit...I ended up going to the "Logitech" site and dowloading the current drivers. I only loaded the drivers and did not use the disk that came with the camera.

Summary: So to make it work: You have to disable a whole load of start up functions, disable your firewall etc. You do not have to do this with Canon or other similar software which loads fine. Error code not in trouble shooter, support say its an issue with Vista. Sorry no. If you want to sell a product make sure it works with current software in all likely cases. Sofware is clearly too intrusive and wants to collect info ( I guess).
Pros: Nice camera, even without software loaded (because I could not load it) it worked very well with skype, is clear and has goot depth in the room
Cons: software has major problems with vista. I tried to load on two different Vista pc configurations. both failed with the same error code(not in trouble shooter list) very poor rude support from logitec
WOULD BE A GREAT CAM IF THE FEATURES IT CAME WITH...

Summary: Before I had purchased this webcam I was diligent in researching the product online and in the forums on the Logitech website. Without finding any major issues with it I ordered it and as soon as I received it I installed the software, plugged in the webcam, configured the audio features with the easy to follow Logitech tuning wizard, and rebooted only to find that I had no audio.
Pros: Video Quality, Cute Video Effects
Cons: Features Sold With Unit Do Not Work/Create Problems, Have To Disconnect/Reconnect To Be Recognized At Times, Can Easily Tip On LCD Screens (No Spring Tension) On Arm
Summary: I bought this webcam principally based on the very positive reviews it had received on amazon. When it arrived I was very excited and for the first few times of usage it actually worked very well. Then and update was needed, which my computer installed, and since then my computer keeps crashing and the webcam doesn't work. I tried to contact support but they were completely useless and unhelpful.
I definitely would not buy this as so much goes wrong.

Excerpt: I purchased a webcam so that I could video call my family and friends when I left for university. Unfortunatley pretty much every aspect of it plays up at some point. The microphone built into it sometimes makes my voice come out high pitched and sqeaky, and so the people at the other end are unable to understand me.
Conclusion: Ni se les ocurra. El software que viene con la cámara no sirve para nada. Hay que bajar un software del sitio de logitech para que rinda algo, lo cual es absurdo. Los videos que se pueden filmar son buenos si uno se abstiene de moverse. Cualquier movimiento los arruina completamente. De terror. Gasten su plata en otra cosa.
Pros: Saca buenas fotos fijas
Cons: Tiene un precio ridículo. Uno esperaría algo mucho mejor por ese precio. Hay cámaras que valen la quinta parte y son iguales. La resolución es un verso.
