- I have Windows XP. Do I need a special driver?
A: Check the part number (p/n) just above the UPC symbol on the back of the box. If the part number is CVB1001 the go : and download the CaptureView Certified Windows XP Driver below. These drivers will automatically install and you will be able to easily connect to the camera. If your camera has a different part number do not install the drivers from the website, the CD already has the most current drivers.
Tip: If you are using Windows XP with a Pentium IV processor, Windows may ask you to install the driver more than once. If this is the case, follow the prompts in the "Install Driver Window", and continue to install the Driver as many times as Windows prompts you to. Normally this will only be 3 times. When Windows stops asking you to "Install New Drivers", the Scopecam driver will have been successfully installed.
The Ulead Photo Express program doesn't see my camera. What do I do?
A: Make sure the camera is plugged in to the USB port of your computer. Verify that "Scopecam" appears as the data source within the Ulead Photo Express program.
If "Scopecam" does not show as the "Data Source" you will need to select "Change Device Type" and then select "Digital Camera".
If you see a message prompting you to "please choose data source", Select the "Scanner" and then scopecam will appear in the data source. Then select "Change Device Type" and choose "Digital Camera".
The Ulead program should now see the camera.
If this does not solve the problem, you may need to uninstall the Driver and then Re-install it.
The Ulead Photo Express program doesn't see my CaptureView Binoculars, and the CaptureView is stuck on the "PC" setting. What should I do?
A: If your CaptureView Binoculars become stuck on the "PC" setting, The Ulead Photo Express will not be able to "See" the camera. Take out the two AAA batteries and leave them out for approximately 5 minutes. This will delete everything from the memory of the CaptureView Binoculars and they will function normally after the batteries are replaced. Unfortunately you will lose all the pictures that were stored in the camera, but the camera will function again normally, and the Ulead program will be able to connect with it.
I have more than one USB port on my computer. Does it matter which one I use to connect the camera?
A: You can use any USB port. But it is important to note that you will have to install the "Scopecam" Driver each time you use a new port other than the original port you connected the camera to the first time.
