I have it hooked up to my PC but the mode only says PC. How do I use it as a web cam? The instructions are not very clear.

Do the instructions actually say that it can be used as a webcam?

I don't know about the Innovage mini cam specifically, but I don't believe it can. Typically, when a camera is connected to a computer (via USB), the computer only sees the camera as a card reader. The camera might be able to capture video, but only to store it or to send it to a TV Out port, not the USB Port, which is where the computer would expect to see a webcam. And if your computer has a TV In port, you could use the computer to watch the video (like a TV) or record it (like a VCR), not send it to the web.

But there are some that do, and maybe the Innovageis one of them.
