Dell gave me a link to a Webcam Central install but I get the message "Please plug in a supported device." when I load it. I have downloaded and installed the Dell Driver for the camera.

Any good tablet tweaking tips?

Thanks,

I received it with Windows 7 installed. I immediately installed Windows 8 Developer Preview. The camera software worked post installation of the Dell software.

There is a reinstallation guide here:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

Here is the package for the Camera:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]

I would recommend ensuring you have the latest BIOS and resetting the BIOS as well.

On Windows 8, the camera installed as "Integrated Webcam" using the Microsoft Driver. When I open the Dell Camera App, in the bottom left corner, I can choose the device. I have:

1. Integrated WebCam
2. Laptop Integrated WebCam 5M
3. Laptop Integrated WebCam HD

There is a rotation button on the upper right that allows you to switch between the front and rear camera. The LED next to the camera should also light up when the camera is turned on.

Also, when I go into Skype, I get the same options for cameras.

Perhaps try checking for errored device installations in Device Manager and reinstalling the Camera App.
