I believe that I “re-flashed” the WYZE CAM v2 to be a web camera properly (all the right lights and clicks were present), but when I plug the camera into a USB port, it does not get recognized by the windows OS (I am using Windows 10). Other USB peripherals can be connected and disconnected, but I cannot get Windows to recognize/install/add this camera. I tried this on more than one PC/laptop with the same result.
Anyone else seeing this, or is this just me?
BTW, I did send something to Wyze customer support, but they only re-sent me the instructions, which I’m fairly certain I executed properly before.
Also we have seen where data only or power only cables will not work (USB printer cables are usually data only for example.) I use and recommend a good quality Belkin fully pinned cable. Best Buy usually has them in stock.
My Windows 10 instantly recognized it, but only after trying a couple different cables. Cheap cables that are not fully pinned out will cause that. On mine the only cable that worked was pinned for power and data.
For me, connecting to either of the 2 USB ports at the front of my computer results in the “Can’t find your camera” message. But using one of the ports in the back of the computer does work. Obviously something oddball about my computer.
This also happened when I tried connecting the recommended very short cable to an extension cable. My guess is that none of my extension cables provide power. (They are very old.)
I bought another, longer cable (10 foot). Using the “Cam” application under Windows 10, things are now sort of working. The problem is that the image is flickering, mostly on the lower half of the image.
I have two Windows 10 desktops, both on Version 1903 (one from Dell which was an upgrade from Windows 8.1 and the other a Velocity Micro box a few years old). The Velocity box worked well with this Wyze box webcam solution, but the older hardware on the Dell encountered the same issues as listed on this thread. Perhaps this solution is only supported on newer hardware + Windows 10?
If I figure out any workarounds or get it to work on the 'ol Dell, I’ll be sure to share here.
Hi have a similar issue, windows can’t find the camera,
in MacOS it works well, with same cable I have tried on 2 windows 10 computer but it cannot find the camera.
in the device manager appears as Unknow USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)
do you know what is the drive to install on Windows?
