    Hi there guys,

    its been a few weeks since installing Windows 7, only for the last few days have i actually bothered to install toshiba software (dont stone me!).

    Right now I've been scratching my head when installing the webcam drivers. When the install is done and after a reset, all it says is Webcam failed to initialize, please restart cam or computer.

    Restarting the laptop wont do anything

    I am using a Toshiba Satellite pro A300 PSAGDA-01C00R, do these drivers simply not work for the time being on 7?

    any help would be great, thanks!

    Do you have skype or a messenger program installed? Maybe its taking control of the webcam.

    Hello

    I have installed THIS version of webcam driver on my Win7 preinstalled Satellite A300 and it works perfectly.

    I have tested preinstalled software and it runs well. I have also tested it with Skype. No problems at all.
    Test it on your Satellite too.
