    Hi everyone,

    It seems that my X200 cannot detect the camera under Vista's device manager. I have downloaded and installed the latest camera drivers too. The integrated camera does appear in another third party software (Yawcam) but I still cannot use it (say's there is no selected device although I have selected the integrated camera option!).

    Something is really weird. There is another post on the official lenovo forum with the same problem.

    So.... With those that have an integrated camera, how do you use it?

    Sorry I can't directly solve your problem.

    Did you check under Imaging Devices? One of the screenshot is of the Device Manager of the X200 I have.

    I just tried the camera for the first time a few minutes ago. There was an icon in the system tray called Lenovo Camera Center. Clicked it. Gave me 2 choices, download Video Conference app, or use Roxio Media Import. I was able to take a snapshot of myself with the Roxio.

    What happens if you click that Lenovo Camera Center icon in the system tray?

    That's strange.... I only get the download app. I already tried installing the drivers, so what's next?

    I installed Skype and it identified the integrated cam and was able to use it immediately.
