    Anyone know how to get your MAC's iSight to work on Windows 7 in applications such as MSN?

    Any drivers at all for the windows side of it?

    Boot Camp provides drivers for the built in iSight cameras.

    Yeah I know, I inserted the disc when on the W7 side and it installed the drivers, but how do I actually use the camera in applications such as MSN as it doesn't recongise the camera?

    I do yes.

    I've tried updating the drivers, but I am told that I have the most up-to-date drivers available.

    So what do I do?

    Did you ever figure this out? I'd like to be able to use my isight when I boot into windows too.

    I'm running windows 7 on a 27" imac i5.

    The camera appears to be installed correctly, shows up in devices, etc.

    So I just need to find a program that will let me record video clips like imovie will.

    Windows live movie maker doesn't appear to be able to capture from a device. Does anyone have suggestions on an application that does?

    Thanks!
