    iMAC Web cam
    Hi,

    Has anyone managed to get a iMAC web cam working in windows xp via bootcamp?
    It was about time I switched... and I am so glad I did.

    Specs:
    2GHz Mac Mini 2GB RAM 160GB 10.6.2 | MDD DP 1.25GHz G4 1.5GB RAM 10.4.11 | 233MHz iMac G3 10.3.9
    Saw this and this and it looks like Apple might have a fix soon. Although with Apple you can never tell - they may wait until Leopard comes out! Guess one would have to watch the rumor sites.

    Here's a thread discussing it

    Ugh... again, the reason for my "READ THE MANUAL!!!" thread...

    Apple clearly states that the iSight is NOT supported in Windows. Though, there may be fixes and opportunities in the future on how to get it up. But officially, so far, not supported. You'll get a BSOD.

    If you search the forums you will find some threads talking about leopard and then leave the rest to GOOGLE.

    I read an article somewhere (wish I could remember) that someone was hosting a web contest to the first person to create a driver to use the iSight in WindowsXP. Guess some people aren't hopeful that Leopard will have a fix.

    anyone know more about this?
