Question about Logitech QuickCam Chat Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Installation I am trying to install a QuickCam by following the brief instructions in the installation book. I am loading onto an Apple Mac. The disc has not prompted me at any stage, to insert the USB cable, yet tells me installation is complete. I have not been able to access anything through the computer which would suggest the install has not happened correctly. I have tried this 3 times, to no avail. The disc has 8.0.1 shown on it, suitable for Mac OS, which suggests it should be compatible. There was also a second disc Arcsoft Collage Creator. Photo impression. I am presuming this is an extra, and not necessary. But as I got no prompts during the install I am not sure. Any help would be much appreciated. M.

Re: Installation

I would install all software with the cam, as there are sometimes hidden drivers within them, then if you get it working you can uninstall any unwanted programmes.
