you have to install the driver from your mac osx install CD on the windows side of your mac. problem is I did it and it worked great the windows side of my MBP could use my webcam but the OSX side couldnt anymore and now I dont know how to fix it. I wouldn't do it.

What in the world are you trying to say, creimers84? Windows Live Messenger for Mac does not have the video call 'webcam' feature yet. That's why it sucks.
