    Hello, basically I want to know if it's possible to change the status of my digital camera when I plug it in. It always loads up as a "Removable Disk" because it has photos and videos on it, thus I cannot record or go on video conversations with people I know, but I want to be able to use it as a web cam so I can record myself through the computer like that the camera doesn't die on me while I'm recording. I've read the "Owner's Manual" and I did not find a single thing about setting it up as a web cam.

    My digital camera is Centrios Digital Camera 6MP/7MP 2518151 (Silver).

    Thanks :)

    Not every digital Camera can be used as a Webcam, your best bet is to email the mfg.

    I tried looking on their web site but it didn't even show Camera's as a Link?

    If it gives no info in the manual as to using it as a webcam, its not a webcam. Very few are both, as the high pixel count makes them unsuited as a webcam.
