Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
I try to video chat but it wont work! this mac desktop has leopard. i'm using an AIM screen name with ichat. This just started to happen with me and my Dad.
Mate you are a legend!!!
Diabling the device (internal iSight) worked. Thank you so so much. Really good advice and to the point.

If you are using VMware Fusion at the same time that you get the problem then it is Fusion. Check by shutting down Fusion then trying the iChat. If it works fine then it's definitely Fusion that is interrupting it.
With internet sharing off as you describe the next thing is to make sure that it is also not sharing the iSight itself. When fusion is running but not windows itself, check the configuration of your windows bootable in Fusion. (You'll have to excuss me a bit as I havn't used Fusion for a bit since switching over to Parallels) Check to see if the iSight is listed among the USB devices.
If it's not there load up windows and check which devices are connected there from the main Fusion Menu or the little icons on the Fusion Status bar. If it's not, double check by right clicking on MyComputer and choosing properties then go to Device Manager and then looking in there for any USB camera devices. If it is, right click and disable it.
See if any of that helps.
All the best
