    I have an external iSight Web camera and want to use it with an iMac with a built in iSight camera. Can I disable the built in iSight camera and instead use the external camera?

    Yes you should be able to. No need to disable the built in one. Most apps let you select which camera you want to use.

    me too

    I'm also trying to connect an isight external camera to my old macbook, but the macbook doesn't even register that it's there.
    could it be that i need drivers?
    i've searched long and hard for them but to no avail.
    i want to have the camera high in the room and record what goes on.
    did you have any joy figuring it out?
