Hey there, I'm hoping someone here can give me some troubleshooting ideas on how to get photobooth, my cam, and my USB ports working again.

I'm on a 2006 Imac with OS X (10.4.11). Built-in cam.

When I try to open Photobooth it says that no camera is attached or it is in use by another application. Of course there is a camera attached, it is built-in, and it is not in use by another application.

At the same time that this problem began I also began experiencing problems with my USB ports where only one will work at a time which presents a lot of problems. These things started happening at the exact same time. I don't know if they are related but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Thanks in advance for help or ideas.
