T400 Windows 7 Integrated Webcam - Where is it?

2009-11-25, 5:26 AM

I've search everywhere and cannot seem to find access to the integrated camera on my T400.

 

I have a new unit, which recently arrived with Windows 7, 64-bit.  I checked the Device Manager and it's listed as working under Integrated Camera in Imaging Devices.  It's just that I don't know how to invoke the camera.  Can somebody clue me in?

 

Thanks!

where do you want to use it? i mean, once all the drivers are installed (which it sounds like they are), all you need is, say, start video chat in skype or msn or whatever, and it'll come on automatically. there's no "on" button for it.

I have the same problem. I have installed Windows 7 in my T400 this week and am not able to access my integrated camera which I used to before.

Why do I need to login to skype to access the camera that is in my system. This doesnt seem like a solution to me.

I have the same question. In Windows XP, the camera could be accessed directly from Windows Explorer as though it were a hard drive. In Windows 7, it doesn't appear that the camera works this way. Is there a way to use the camera in Windows 7 to capture pictures/video in the same way that Windows XP allowed?

The way it works in W7/Lenovo requires an application.  YAWCAM may help:

I've been using yawam for about a month and highly recommend it.  Very straightforward and free to boot!
