Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 (Retail Packaging) (Accessory)
This came without any installation CD or instructions except for a picture showing it being plugged in to a USB port. That's the new packaging- proper quality Microsoft box, but no drivers or info. And it works fine if you just plug it in- it installs itself as a USB Video device and works in 640x480 resolution.

However, you can go to Microsoft online and download a package of drivers and software which will enhance the abilities of this camera, to give higher resolution and so on. Here is the link:

https://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-us/p/lifecam-hd-3000 (then select your operating system to get a download link).

Having done that, though, I found the "Lifecam" utility software crashed and stopped the camera working, so I had to uninstall it (on both computers I tried it on). The HD-3000 specific driver remains in place though. I still don't have HD resolution in Skype.

yes the software is abysmal mine takes a full minute to load and get a picture, worst software ever written. how ironic is that ? Microsoft largest software writers in the world? would not buy anything again that requires Microsoft's own soft ware, but as they own the world there's not much hope of that is there bill?
