  1. i am running on snow leopard right now, so if anyone is familiar with it, please help me.

    i've done everything. i have restarted my computer several times. i shut it down, unplugged it, logged in to a different user, unplugged every usb (even if it is irrelevant. just to say i tried.) i looked into every application that used the built in camera (ichat, newest and previous imovies, photobooth, skype, even webcam pic capture on myspace,) and nothing is working. :(

    if you can help me out, i will be forever grateful. :)

    Uninstall the camera software and reinstall it

    Aside from what is said there I don't have much else to say other than Snow Leopard isn't retail yet, so there are bound to be problems. Just like you shouldn't expect everything to be perfect on Windows 7 yet.
