    Hi, I can't seem to get my Webcam to run in Windows Vista through Parallels. The webcam works just fine if I bootcamp into Vista, but when in Parallels using Windows Live messenger I just get a black image from the webcam.

    The webcam is an iMage USB Webcam, which is driverless.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    In Parallels try Window -> USB Device. That might work.

    Yes you have to do that to make the webcam available on the Windows side. The problem is the feed from the webcam is just black. After reading the Parallels forum several users have this problem with different webcams.
