    Trouble with a Logitech Webcam
    Having trouble with my new Logitech webcam. It's a Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX. I downloaded the drivers to run it, but for some reason, when I plug the cam itself into my usb port, it doesn't see it. Nothing comes up, it acts like I haven't even plugged it in.

    Any help?

    Mac Cam?
    I use a Logitech Webcam and use mac cam software. Remeber to move the plug in if you download it.

    nforret, Welcome to Mac Forums, from a fellow Maritimer (I am originally from Halifax)!

    Re your webcam, Macs are a little restrictive about the web cams they support. In general, they only directly support Apple's iSight - that is it. And that isn't much help since these are no longer for sale, except on eBay (not a bad option by the way).

    So, what to do? eCamm Networks sells the iMage web cam, which they say is fully Mac compatible - but, no microphone. See:

    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/imagewebcam

    They also sell iChatUSBCam, a driver that works with your webcam's native Mac OS X drivers to allow iChat to use a large number of commonly available commercial webcams. See:

    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/ichatusbcam

    This may be your best bet. Before you do this though, make sure that your webcam does come with Mac OS X drivers. If not, nothing will ever make it work and you will need to get one that does at least have Mac OS X drivers.

    Personally, I would go shopping at eBay - there are lots of iSights readily available there. I have bought a lot of stuff from eBay over the years. It is a great place to get good merchandise at a good price.
    My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
    My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
    My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

    Thank you, I ended up downloading the mac cam driver, and after some time fooling around with it, it finally worked.

    Thank you.

    PS- It's nice to hear from a fellow Maritimer.
