    I've got a macbook pro4, 1, which I only bought two months ago and I'm running Mac OS X v. 10.5.6.

    I'd used the in-built webcam a couple of times and found it absolutely excellent. However, today I logged in to aMSN and it doesn't seem to work (I get Apple error code -9405). Seeing it not work I then opened Photo Booth, which wasn't recognising any camera.

    I guess my camera has broken already? Is there anyway to know for sure? I've run updates since its previous use, could a quicktime update have disagreed with it? Is it likely to be fixable (I think I know the answer to that one...)

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    It's always possible it's defective, or disconnected.

    I'd visit your closest apple store after you schedule a genius bar reservation to have them take a look at it.

    best of luck to you
