      WINXP Service pack 3

      webcam: 3Com Homeconnect

      It seems to be working fine on yahoo messenger but not on MSN or SKYPE.

      On MSN I get message "Cannot connect to this webcam. Close any programs that may be using your webcam, and choose Set Up Audio Video to try again"

      Skype does not connect to the camera.

      Please help.

      if you are using the webcam on yahoo and want to also use on msn.. it wont be possible. you can use webcam once at any chat client. so better close yahoo webcam and then try it on msn or skype.

      I've noticed many times if you've left ur pc on for a long time that happens with skype.

      Usually if you restart your PC at that time you can connect to webcam. At least it works that way for me !

      As Aaho said, shutting off Yahoo should solve the issue. Usually when you "close" those IM apps they don't really close they just get minimized into the system tray (where you see the time).

      And as sheyn said, if you restart the computer it fixes the problem also (in essense the IM application gets nuked during restart).

      Webcam is not being used simultaneously on all three applications. Without Skype or Yahoo messenger running, MSN does not recognize webcam is not being utilized by any other program and SKYPE simply doesn't detect that there is a webcam. Same is the case not only on the desktop computer but also on the laptop.

      ^^ try reinstalling drivers. if it also doesnt solve the problem then go to the preferences / options/settings of the chat software and then go to webcam option in it and seeif there your webcm is selected / active. If it is not active there then you have to select it as per software options.
