Trying to instal Logitech QuickCam S5500 on my mac

I am trying to instal Logitech QuickCam S5500 on my mac which is running OSX 10.3.9. Can anyone please help me by guiding me through what I need to do. I bought it because I was advised that it would work on a mac even thought the packaging says it was an application for Windows.

I am on Mac OSX with a Logitech QuickCam. It has gone dark and I see no drivers for anything but PCs. I tried the cam on Skype and LogitechVid and it's dark in both apps.


If there has been no software modifications in your Mac is very unlikely that it's a driver problem - almost surely the webcam itself has failed. The only way to test that is by installing it in a Windows box.
This camera should work with the default driver but this one
http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/
will also do the job.

Try downloading this and using your Camera. As I understand it, there is no official support for this camera for Mac. This may work, assuming your using OSX.
