    Please help a Mac newbie. I’m having bad luck installing and using a Logitech Quickcam Pro 4000 on my Mac Mini under Leopard 10.5.1.

    I went to VersionTracker.com and downloaded Logitech QuickCam.dmg vers. 8.0.1.
    I ran the .dmg file and it installed QuickCapture.app/
    I plugged in the camera and ran QuickCapture.app.

    The application found the camera and I was able to change the screen size from 320x240 to 640x480. After a couple of minutes the QuickCam screen loses its picture and the window turns blue; a pop-up window says, “An unexpected problem has occurred. (gpc:706).” Sometimes I get a spinning beach ball and have to do an opt-cmd-Esc to quit the application.

    I erased the .dmg and .app files; did an new download and install. Got the same results.

    I’d sure appreciate any help, ideas, etc. that you may have.

    Thanks,
    -Nick T.

    Try this. It worked for my wife's Qcam on her Mini running Leopard.

    Installing the webcam driver fixed my problem.

    Your help is much appreciated!
