First install the driver and the software that is included on the CD that came with it. That software should be straight forward with getting your webcam to take pics and/or videos.

i use a program that came on a free cd i got from the rack of crap at office max or best buy or some other store, i think it was "Do Amazing Things with WinXp" or something like that. . so you can probably go to the microsoft website and search for the same program. . either that, or look at the software that came with your webcam, it's bound to have something there

you have to install it into the computer first. Then using a program or just using a program given with the webcam, you can take pictures. OR you could jsut use a digital camera and then upload it into a computer

First download or load the driver for your webcam to your PC. Then take a search for instructions on how to do so on the internet in Yahoo! Search. This all depends on the type of webcam you are using and such and anything else needed within this can be found through your instruction manual.
