    Hi all

    Have setup Vista with BC 1.3 on the 17" MBP and all is fine except for the iSight camera which is listed with yellow exclamation mark and informs me no drivers installed..

    Had a look on the 1.3 CD and ran the appleisightinstaller and after a prompt to allow it then doesn't do anything, well not that I can see.

    I removed the device and then selected detect hardware and now come up as unknown device and tried to install driver again.

    Anyone have any idea's to get this device working?

    Did you install the Boot Camp tools/drivers properly?

    No go after trying another method.

    I expanded the appleisightinstall on another computer and the result is a number of files so the file is not corrupt.

    File list
    DPInst App
    DPInst XML
    iSight (Security Catalog)
    iSight (Setup inf)

    Tried browsing to these files to update driver through device manager but no good.

    Tried to install the inf file directly and get an error "The INF file you selected does not support this method of installation"

    At a loss.

    Is there anyone that owns a Macbook Pro (recent) and have the isight working?

    Try ripping the driver CD again. I had to burn like 5 before I finally got a good working one. (it's what happens when you buy cheap CDs).

    I too am having the exact same problem although in Windows XP SP2. I had never had that problem with the older versions of Bootcamp and the older generations of MB and MBPs. I have burned the drivers disk over 5 times using 3 different kinds of cds and still the same problem. My hunch is that it has something to do with the updated isight (1.3MP) on the SR machines. Can somebody please confirm if they are having the same problems with Bootcamp 1.3 with pre Santa Rosa machines? I have a 17" MBP SR and having these problems.
