    Hey all,

    I have searched the internet and this forum long and hard but no one seems to have the same problem. this may be me being thick so I apologise! Anyways I erased my hard drive, and reinstalled remotely os snow leopard. I don't know if I first should have reinstalled using the macbook air ios that I recieved first of all. The only problem I have noticed is that the camera (iSight I think its called) is there a driver (yes I am windows user) that i needed to install or something? To clarify, my macbook air doesnt seem to understand there is a camera, even though before i reinstalled i was using it on skype. It still recognises my mic.

    iOS is the operating system that runs on ipad's, ipod's and iphones. I think you are reffering to your 'restore drive'.

    Just pop it in, install from scratch and everything will be fine.

    No worries man :D
