i got a jamcam from a relitive, and it's installed...but will not download the pics i took...what do i do? please email me at email@example.com
: Hope this helps - I lifted it from my Epinions comment.
: It definitely works better under 98SE.
: With that said, get the 2000/XP drivers at http://www.compgeeks.com/drivers/JamCam3.exe, and the XP software update from http://www.compgeeks.com/drivers/JCAM3FUD.exe.
: More information is also available at http://www.noslogan.com/Various/KBGear.html.
: Instructions (taken from "K Mack" at driverforum.com) follow - NOTE: I was able to skip step 3, the "compatibility" check, and still get good results. It doesn't seem to be necessary.
: Here are the complete instructions for correctly installing the USB driver update (JamCam left off a couple of critical steps!):
: 1. Make sure youíve set up your folder view properties to view file extensions for known file types. From within any folder,
: a. Select Tools, Folder Options
: b. Click on the View tab
: c. Under Advanced Settings, de-select Hide extensions for known file types.
: d. Click Apply to all folders, then OK.
: 2. Download both of the XP update files from jamonline.com
: 3. Make sure the downloaded zipped JamCam update files arenít set for backwards compatibility (I think this is what was causing my problem):
: a. Right click on file.
: b. Select Properties.
: c. Choose Compatibility tab.
: d. De-select ďRun this program in compatibility mode for:Ē
: e. Click OK, and then repeat for the other file.
: 4. Install JamCam 3.0 software from CD.
: 5. Donít reboot.
: 6. Install the JamCam 3.0 XP update.
: 7. Install the JamCam XP driver update.
: 8. Find the folder named cabs on C: (C:\cabs).
: 9. Right-click on kbcam.inf and select Install.
: 10. Close the window.
: 11. Connect your camera to a USB port and turn it on.
: 12. Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
: 13. Go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.
: 14. You should see JamCam listed there.
: 15. Double-click on JamCam in the device list.
: 16. Go to the Driver tab.
: 17. Select Update Driver button.
: 18. Select Install from specific location.
: 19. Point to C:\cabs.
: 20. It should find kbcam.sys, if not, choose Browse and reselect C:\cabs.
: 21. If you get a dialog box stating that the driver isnít digitally signed by XP, click on continue installation anyway.
: Hope this comment is helpful to some...
