    Unhappy iSight not working
    Hey,All!

    Is anyone experiencing issues with their iSight not working?

    When I try to launch PhotoBooth, I get this message:
    "Photo Booth cannot open because no camera is attached or the camera is in use by another application."

    I tried resetting the PRAM and performing an SMC reset.

    It worked for a little while, then it just stopped working.

    I tried to reset again but to no avail.

    This thing's driving me nuts!

    HELP!!!!

    I had that problem a while ago when I first got my macbook. Turns out that when I was messingaround discovering the different widgets, I had downloaded a widget that used the isight. Everytime I restarted the computer, the widget using the isight automatically started up and took over my camera, and nothing else could access it. Once i closed the widget, photobooth worked again. Took me forever to figure this out. Did you download a camera widget by chance?

    I found these two webpages where a person had problems with iSight showing the exact same error as you have been receiving.

    Hope they help.
