It sounds like the drivers for the camera are there, but not the software programme. Can you use the camera in Windows live once it has been set up in the options? Is your camera recognised when connected? or is it just the software that's not working.

Successfully installing Hyper-Utility2 on my Mac

Hi Paula,

Something that happens with Macs is the file permissions get messed up from installer programs. This problem usually can be corrected by running the disk tools program. It is usually located in your Applications folder in the Utilities sub folder.

You did not specify with version of OSX your Powerbook Pro is running. Make sure you have all the updates from Apple for your OS. You might also need to get an update from Fuji for the Hyper-Utility2 software. That can be found here: Fuji

Lastly, iPhoto is compatible for quick downloads from your camera

How do i change the settings for a better picture on logitech quickcam communicate STX? im using windows XP I cant find any button for "settings" to the webcam.

Launch the Logitech toolbar from your desktop or from All Programs
The settings menu is the 2 gear wheel logo on the toolbar.
Start your cam first in the Quick Capture menu (2 film frames)
Make sure your USB is 2.0 (enhanced)
You may have to reinstall the latest software from here,en?prodcrid=405

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4

STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!
