Well...I always scratch my head when I read about someone buying something that they are not sure will work with their computer. Usually it's a good idea to confirm compatibility before purchasing. Maybe you got it for $10 bucks at a yard sale...and didn't have time for research.

Anyways...when you say "i-sight" do you mean one of these?:



I happen to have an original i-sight camera box and instruction manual...and the system requirements are:

- a Macintosh computer with a minimum of a G3 cpu at 600mhz or greater...or any G4 or G5 cpu.
- Mac OS 10.3 or later

I'm guessing that your G4 iBook meets these requirements...so it should pretty much be "Plug & Play". If not...here's a link that may contain some info to help get it operating:

Apple - Support - iSight

HTH,

FYI...thread has been moved to a more appropriate sub-forum...not really a switcher topic. Thanks
