Integrated webcam and mic issues. Please help.

Postby TheKirbyAffair on Thu Oct 29, 2009 11:14 pm

Okay, so I installed Sun VirtualBox onto my laptop. I have installed Windows Vista on it and have re-installed all the drivers and what not and the CD for my webcam software installation. However, when I go to turn on my webcam it says that I need to plug in a supported device. When I try to configure my mic it says basically the same thing. Before I got VirtualBox I had aMSN on my regular desktop and the webcam worked fine on there, but not the mic. I googled my little heart out on the subject and found this was a common problem with the webcam re-installation. No matter what I tried though I can't seem to get it to work. If anyone knows how to fix this, or can figure it out, your help would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you could just tell me how to get the mic working for aMSN that'd be lovely too.
Thanks so much in advance!

Don't be sorry . . :) . . check out Virtualbox's website, they'll have more info for your specific problem, if you think it is Mint that is causing this, just provide some pertinent info (c to g in the previous link), so that someone knowledgeable about your application may be able to help . . :wink:
