Microsoft Adds VX-2000 to LifeCam Series
The VX-2000 from Microsoft is an affordably priced webcamMicrosoft Hardware today launched four products including three new additions to its BlueTrack line and a new LifeCam VX-2000. The “easy-to-use webcam with a built-in microphone and vivid VGA video” takes Microsoft’s LifeCam series product number to 10.
The new cam features a VGA video sensor for clear video and a camera interpolated to 1.3 megapixels for still photography. The auto-focus and auto-light adjustment system built into the cam provide best possible video even in low-light conditions. With a capture rate of up to 30 frames per second, the VX-2000 is designed for smooth and seamless video chatting and conferencing.
The plug and play camera comes with a built-in, highly-sensitive microphone that picks up voices with extreme clarity. A unique addition to the new cam is the video effects feature that provides entertaining video effects through the LifeCam dashboard. With direct support for Windows Live Video through the LifeCam Video Message gadget, the VX-2000 makes it easy for you to send video messages to your contacts at the click of a mouse.
Expected to become available in June, the LifeCam VX-2000 will retail at $30 and will be backed by Microsoft’s three-year limited warranty.

Appologies if this is in the wrong section ;)

Tomorrow ATI are due to release cat 9.5 - I havnt updated my drivers in a while and have been having a few issues recently, so have decided to try these out.

However, ive no idea what the current "proceadure" for updating ATI drivers is,

at a guess...

Uninstall ATI drivers via control panel
run Driver (or similar) + safe mode
install new ATI's

However some people seem to suggest to just install the new driver set without doing *anything* - so im a tad confused as to which to do ;)

Cheers for any info!

I've tried both ways you have listed and noticed no problems either way.

I use driver cleaner pro after uninstalling the previous drivers- be it sound OR graphic card. Does the job.
