    only a minor grumble from me...my built in iSight doesn't work any more...:-(

    27/10/2007 22:19:12 Photo Booth[2663] capture runtime error:{
    NSLocalizedDescription = "Operation could not be completed.";
    NSLocalizedRecoverySuggestion = "The operation could not be completed due to an unknown error. (Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-536870164 \"Operation could not be completed. (OSStatus error -536870164.)\")";
    NSUnderlyingError = Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-536870164 "Operation could not be completed. (OSStatus error -536870164.)";
    }

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried actually shutting down, and turning the iMac back on? Not a restart, but actually shut down, then turn back on. I had a problem with my iSight once, and a restart didn't fix it, but a Shut Down did.
