    Recently purchased a Satellite Pro A300, with built in webcam. However, when i try and use the webcam in Windows live messenger it comes up with the following error messages.

    *"We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again."*

    Also this message..

    *"Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x82000009)"*

    Now, the camera is not turned on, and Messenger is working normally.

    *HELP!!*

    Thanks

    When you get the message if an other program use still the camera.

    So try to disable the webcam software and other messenger programs in msconfig.
    Then reboot the notebook and if you want to use the webcam software you have to start the webcam software firstly.
