So I got this £5 webcam from woolies oh yeahh. It works a fair amount of the time but sometimes I plug it in and when I click AMCap (the program where it runs just as a camera), it comes up with an Error saying "This graph cannot preview!"
And then when I use it on msn it just says it's not plugged in, or its in use. But it's definitely plugged in because on My Computer it's registered... does anyone know how to sort this out? Thanks

Refund the webcam and buy a better one.

Don't buy a five pound webcam from Woolworths.

If it's plugged in it still may be in use. Like with my cam there's an option to open it and take pics without being on msn. If this is open it won't work with msn as a webcam. Same if you haven't set it up as a cam on msn (Audio and video setup).
