    Sites like stickam are designed for Windows. I think they can work with OS X, but I don't have experiecne there so I can't really help. If you have Parallels, it should work there.

    Check System Profiler under the USB section of Hardware. See if the iSight is shown under the USB High-Speed Bus. If it is, try iMovie or the iChat audio/video preferences, either of which should get input from the camera. Also try another user account. If the iSight isn't detected you could try an SMC reset which usually fixes the issue when the camera is not shown.
