Hi I read somewhere that this camera:



Has a webcam function in it. However I haven't been able to find it, nor can I find the driver/firmware that enables the webcam function.

Any type is appreciated

I'm pretty sure this particular model did NOT have a web-cam function. Not sure why it was removed, though..

Ooh. Is there anyway to upgrade/downgrade the firmware to a different type to add the webcam feature, or is it just not possible?

let clear up some info first.

1 Is this brand new? meaning Never opened ? if this was a used purchase ( no offense)

2 Contact Aiptek.com/support for firmware you probably have a low end fiirmware if I can guess it is not Fw3501 hw 00

check it by going to playback and hit screen play button and menu

DO NOT HIT THE RECORD?

Well I bought this from Target around June-July. It was brand new, and I have used it since then.

When I click mode and get to the screen with the playback, and record, and all of that and I hit the middle button on the LCD and the menu button nothing happens.

I didn't hit the record button right now. But I've used the record function before.

Ok I hit mode and it takes me to the screen with all the different options like playback etc.

Then I hit the center button and menu at the same time.

I know the firmware number is supposed to pop up, but it doesn't.

Sorry about your camcorder =[

Also I don't have the battery. I'm powering via the USB AC adapter thing.
