    I have a mac pro running Windows XP via Boot Camp. Does anyone know if iSight will work on the Windows side?

    Havn't tried it but from what I have heard it doesn't.

    I don't know about an external one. My onboard iSight works just fine with Boot Camp 1.1 drivers. (Yes they're old.)

    I tried to open the camera in XP and the system crashed. The camera shows up as a device with it's own icon so I thought I would give it a try. Unless it has changed with the latest bootcamp update then don't try it.

    Works for me, but I didn't do anything with it other than check the image. Built in on iMac 24".

    The OP is talking about an external iSight and not the built-in ones found on the MacBook/Pro and iMac.

    Just for clarification.

    If its USB, it should work the same.

    The iSight is FireWire.
