    So I have a MBP 2.5 Penryn and I've reinstalled Windows XP via bootcamp. XP is fully updated and has SP3. I installed the drivers that came with my leopard DVD and everything works except the isight camera! :mad: It's just called a "USB Video Device" (I think in my previous installation it was called Apple Built In isight).

    So when I click on it to open it I get a message that says: "Creation of the video preview failed. Please check the device connection and make sure the device is not being used by another application or user." I don't see any conflicts under device manager or anything like that. I even updated my bootcamp to 2.1 and it still does not fix the problem. The camera also works fine under OS X. Please help me with my problem. Thanks.

    Just put the Mac install disk and reinstall the bootcamp thing again.

    Last time, i had to reinstall Windows because the bootcamp thing on Windows failed to work. My keyboard stopped responding on login, which means i can't even type my password!!! :mad:
