When you buy and connect an external webcam, it should work smoothly and without issues. This is known as a “plug-and-play” device. Most Logitech webcams, on the other hand, will come with discs that will allow you to install the necessary software. If you misplace this installation disc, it does not mean your webcam will never work again.
If you ever need to install a new Logitech webcam without the disc, you can go to the company’s website and directly download the installation software. Follow this guide to locate, download, and install the necessary drivers.
How To Install – Full Process
Step – 1: Connect And Place Your Logitech Webcam
- First, position your Logitech webcam where you intend to use it.
- This is best positioned on top of your computer’s monitor. Connect the USB cable to any available USB port on your computer.
- If your webcam does not appear automatically, you will need to download the drivers.
- Please keep your webcam unplugged while downloading and installing the new drivers, as the Installation Wizard will prompt you to reconnect your webcam at the appropriate time during the installation process.
Step – 2: Locate Appropriate Drivers On The Logitech Website
- To begin, go to the Logitech website. Hover your mouse over the Support tab from the top menu once there.
- This brings up the Support drop-down menu.
- Click Downloads from there. There should be a section called Webcams and Camera Systems, which, if you click, will take you to a selection of different webcams and camera options.
- You can then navigate to the Webcam subsection to find your specific Webcam product model.
- If you don’t know the product name of your webcam, look for the model number or part number on the camera.
- You can then look up that number on the Logitech website in the Webcam Software and Driver Support for Windows section for your camera’s specific name
Step – 3: Download And Install The Necessary Drivers.
- After selecting your specific webcam product number from the Webcam section, you should be taken to a page that covers all of the features of that model.
- Navigate to the Downloads section. You will then be given the option to download the most recent drivers for either Mac OS or Windows.
- Select the appropriate computer type, followed by your current operating system from the drop-down menu.
- When you’ve found the right version for the right OS, click Download Now. After downloading the driver, open the folder where you saved it and double-click the.pkg or.exe file to begin the installation process.
- Then, to finish the installation, follow the instructions provided by the driver installation program.
