1 wit hte F on the second tabs line you see next to wmp and Qt CLICK IT . a small window opens up with " http: remove that in blue by backspace or otherway.

2 take out watch? so the V stays in front of the slash, and place a slash after, remove = so it looks like this

Earlier you mentioned your pc/laptop has three cds. or camcorder has three cds.

thecam should be automatically rcognised, if not then maybe the usb port is filled to capacity, but you mentioned its fairly new.

is it possable that the vu-point is an old model that XP/vist is to new for the cam?

I said and say try finding he driver disk, load, right click and explore, gettingto the set up etc and try that.

I know if i had it in front of me it be a sinch but, just that somethingwe're overlooking

arewe plugging in the cam with a battry and as well the data cord and opening hte screen to acknoledge . stumped fornow

I here you. Bt it won't acknowledge the camera at all when I hook it up to computer. At firdt it serches around for a driver. And you may be right. I have a lot of stuff hooked up to my laptop usb. First my built in webcam, Then my printer. Then 4-5 other digital cameras/camcorders.:roll::-)

But I'll try it again.

Okay, it will not except the drivers. It does not like my HP Pavallion or the HP does not like it.

The Camera comes with three CDs. So they cover operatiing systems from win 98-vista 32-62bit. I might have to use another computer.:shock:

I even tried going through the device manger. I see it in port 2 a unknown device. No matter what I do the drivers will not load. it even pretends. Then disappears.

MyHp is very tempermental. When ever I use capture device or another camera as a web cam it knocks out my built in webcam.It drives me nuts so I have reinstall the built in webcam driver just to use the web cam.

It works pretty good. I can say it's durable, I have crashed a few times with it and it still works.

I added a cheap e-bay FOTODIOX wide angle lens: http://cgi.ebay.com/Wide-Angle-Telep...2em118Q2el1247







It is a bit small for the imager in this camera and you get distortion at the outer edges. It is good enough for the dirtbike footage. Here is a clip from last week:

and same clip on Vimeo (can download source video if you sign up)

WoW! That is some rough riding. How do you get the camera to stay on your dirt bike with all the rocking around? What kind of mount do you use to mount your camera?

I used the NV15 on some of my videos with my Scooter/Motorcycle. But my mount was kinda cheessy.

No kidding. I need something better. What do you suggest?

You can see the mounting plate attatched to the helmet in the pic from the first page of this thread. The camera slides into this plate and (not shown) is held in by a velcro strap which wraps around the camera and plate. It works pretty good.

Wide angle lens opens up the field of view by about 20 degrees.

Mounting the camera to your helmet will isolate a lot of the vibration and shakes you get when mounted directly to the bike. You have better control of the camera and can aim it by moving your head.

GoPro makes a couple of decent "sports" cams with all sorts of mounting options. Once my camera breaks, I will probably buy one. They range from $140 - $180 depending on the model and mounts they come with. They also have a new wide angle model in their lineup.
