hey there,

so i'm pretty dumb sometimes. i bought a logitech E2500 web-cam for my mac not knowing that it wasnt mac-compatible (i mean cmon, really? not mac-compatible, its usb for cryin out loud). anyway, is there any possible way to get it to work with my mac? any magic software patch or anything? the microphone works on it but not the video, so i know its getting some kind of signal. thanks in advance......

p.s. i already tossed the receipt and most of the box. (another dumb mistake)

Maccam. http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/

Sympathies for your situation For the life of me I cannot understand why Logitech hasn't seized on the opportunity to score big time with Mac computer users.

I wish Apple could somehow do for webcams what they do for printers, but I suppose given that they're pushing the internal iSights in most of their products, it's not worth it for them.

ugh, no dice with the mac-cam. thanks for the help tho. i just dont understand why logitech makes other things that work with macs but not cameras. oh well, i guess its going up on craigslist. some poor pc user might need it. thanks again.
