Hi -
I'm bamboozled. Need a suggestion.
Equipment:
> MacBook, 2GHz, Core2Duo, Early '09,
4 G RAM, 320 G HD, 80 G NTFS
Partition.
Software:
> MacOS 10.8 fully updated
> BOOT CAMP installation of Windows 7 Hm. Prem. 64 BIT, fully licensed, fully updated from Microsoft's servers.

PROBLEM:
> NO iSight camera app/utility available.

Discussion:
In Windows, go to Win. HD icon, right click, choose "Properties", click "Device Manager". That window shows 3 items as drivers missing:
Other devices:
* Bluetooth USB Host Controler
• Coprocessor
* Unknown device.
Since this MacBook has a built-in iSight camera I wanted to put on the Windows Desktop a clickable icon to allow a user access to that device the same way they could access it on the Mac side.

Any suggestions warmly welcomed.

Patrick

Did you install the Boot Camp drivers for Windows 7? Open Control Panel in Windows 7 and go to the Boot Camp entry. Select update. If that doesn't work, you may have to download the Boot Camp update direct from Apple. The Boot Camp drivers for Windows 7 will enable the iSight camera and other devices that drivers may be missing for.
