1. The software would not recognize the camera being attached to the laptop..it kept saying connect the camera before proceeding.
2. When it finally started to recognize it, after connecting it again the umpteenth time..it would not launch the webcam from the main menu..no matter how many times I tried.
So I checked the state of the Toucam driver, only to find out that it was disabled. But enabling it did not help either. Finally I decided to reload the software, so I wanted to start out a fresh. Hence I decided to uninstall and then reload. But every time I tried to uninstall, it gave me an error message, something about a corrupted ToucamPro.isu file. Now I decided to reload the software and see if that helps the situation any better..but the reload would not go thru either, proabably because it already detected the software on the laptop. Completely exasperated, just when I thought that I would throw in the towel..it came to me.
I went into the folder, where the corrupted ISU file was residing at..and renamed it to TOUCAMPRO.isu.old. Reloaded the software, and voila, it reloaded successfully, and launched the webcam without issues. Immediately I saved all of my images from the night before onto the local disk. The camera works fine now! What an experience!! Has anyone else been through something similar? Can you share your thoughts?

what capture software are you using? when i first started using my spc900 (same cam) years ago i quickly learned that the program that comes with the cam is less than ideal. there are many free capture programs out there that work much better. i use wxastrocapture as i find it the simplest for me.
