    I recently bought a Logitech c270 webcam with the understanding that it would work with my iMac. However the webcam does not seem to be recognised by my iMac.

    When I connect the webcam it is not switching on, no green light on the webcam or anything to indicate any activity at all.

    I read on the Logitech site that all the software needed was already in OS X. According to the Logitech website "Your Logitech camera must be UVC (Universal Video Class) compliant in order to be used on your Mac OS 10.4.9 or later computer. These standard UVC drivers are provided by the operating system and will only provide minimal camera support".

    The C270 is listed as UVC compliant and I'm on OS X 10.6.8.

    I'm tried to use it with Photobooth and also Skype but with zero success.

    Any help most appreciated.

    Buying C270

    I'd like buy the logitech c270 webcam. But I'm not sure if it's completly compatible with OS X 10.6.8 or not. Someone with this cam can tell me?

    You know if it's necessary install logitech drivers or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    works fine without drivers. Good cam & mic for the price. Great to make your Mac mini or G5 full featured.
