Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Leopard is not really suited for the iBook G4.  I would recommend you go back to Tiger and see if that gets rid of your lockup.  Leopard is more suitable for the Macbook.

you might have to find the drivers on the website and instal them using a external mouse and keyboard.and a flash drive.there is also the possibility that there are no avalable drivers since macs make there cds individually for each computer.the comp and cd are a married couple you have to use the cd it came with.

Try to do a custom install and skip that application, if it works then it was that app. If it still gives you a issue, then you need to go to the utilities on the cd and check the HD to make sure there are not bad sectors.

How to install an icecam 2 in a Mac G4 with 1.1 USB port


Drivers can be found here: http://www.macally.com/EN/Techsupport/Drivers.asp

If you want to use the camera with iChat you will need the third party software called iUSBcam found here: http://www.ecamm.com/mac/iusbcam/

Side note, I have yet to get this camera to work in OSX 10.3.9, so tread lightly.
