I'm not sure when it happened, but my G5 has lost the ability to see my iSight. I've tried two different iSights, 2 cables, and all Firewire ports...nothing. The ports are good (tested with external HD's), and the iSights are good (works on my laptop). Any suggestions? I really need to get this to work.<br><br>Thanks in advance.<br><br>
I should have mentioned that I tried that as well...still no luck. If I go to iChat > Preferences, it says I have no camera attached...no matter the cam or the port, or the cable. I am flumuxed<br><br>
Then I share your flumuxness. Have you run a disk utility like Disk Warrior? And, silly as it sounds, are you sure the cam is on? I mean, you haven't inadvertantly turned it off by rotating the lens cowl counter-clockwise?<br><br>
HAHA...you know, I hadn't used it in a while and I thought to myself that maybe I HAD forgotten how to turn the silly thing on, but that's not the case. If I disconnect it from my G5 and plug the same cord into my PB, viola!...video. But not on my tower. <br><br>I do appreciate the help...I hope I can get this one figured out. Anyone else?<br><br><br>
you know...when I started trouble shooting this stupid thing it did see HD's attached to it. When you asked me that, rather just saying "heck yah!", i went back and checked again. THis time no dice. Hmmm...interesting. So I shut down, reboot and FSCK -F the drive, and wow...HD reappears as does iSight. And I thought I had tried everything.<br><br>Ahhh FSCK, is there anything you can't fix?<br><br>Thanks for the help everyone!<br><br>

You know...if I recall any minor quirk I've had with OS X (and I've been with it since Beta), I can say that well over 95% have been fixed with fsck. I guess I'll keep knocking on that luck wood.<br><br>
