I recently purchased a bundle comprising Arcsoftphoto impression, Funhouse, Digital Camera & C.D. It is called a Toy Camera JL2005A.

After installation of the program I attempted to take pictures with the camera and download them into my p.c. in photo impression program. I constantly get the following messages: -

(a) The file dshowext.ax on Windows XP professional
Service Pack 2 cd is needed. Type the path where
the file is located and then click O.K.

(b) Digital camera cannot be found.

Even though the camera is plugged in (b) above comes up.

So far as the camera is concerned It appears to take pictures but nothing appears on the LCD Screen. The camera however appears on my screen as "Hardware found".

The camera is a pocket or clip on camera that can also be used as a webcam. It costs about $30.00 US.

The package can be found at Arcsoft.com web page.

A visit to the web site revealed that there must be a flaw in the driver however I can find no update for the same. I have read the user manuel and can find no assistance. Hence my inquiry.

Your kind assistance will be appreciated.

Standeb.

Hi Moderators,

Although I received no threads to my inquiry I advise that a solution was found to the problem.

I had Sp2 installed on my system prior to the problem, however I found out that the version I had was not the full version. The full version of the same was downloaded yesterday and I am now happy to say that the file needed was therein but I did not know that before.

However it was an experience for me but still a priviledge to have written in to this forum.

Respectfully

standeb.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
