  • Hi,

     

    Is it a built-in iSight camera or an external iSight camera? As far as I know, there are no  Windows driver exists for external iSight, Windows 7 will autodetect an iSight camera as “1394 Desktop Video Camera” and is not capable of receiving audio from iSight’s internal microphones.  For the built-in iSight, Version 1.2 of Apple’s Boot Camp supports Windows XP and Windows Vista. Windows 7 may be supported. To get the well support of iSight Camera in Windows 7, please contact Apple for Windows 7 driver.

     

    As a work around, you could enable Windows XP Mode and use iSight Camera inside of Windows XP Mode.

  • Those drivers come Apple, you would go there in hopes of finding a driver.

  • Boot Camp is an Apple product and ALL support for Boot Camp comes entirely from Apple!

    Running Windows on Apple hardware is not very successful. This is due to the proprietary hardware they use.

    Vote if answered or helpful, I am running for Office (joke)! IT/Developer, Windows/Linux/Mainframe I also am a true vegan and I am very good with economics and I used to play chess at 2400++

  • Using 27" Cinema Display on PC, running Windows 7.  No Mac software at all.

    You shouldn't need a driver for Windows 7.  I know it has a ! under the camera because the driver is missing.  If you go into YAHOO messager or anything else that needs a camera it will work (at least it did on my PC).  The speakers and microphone work too.

     

    To remove the ANNOYING ! this is what I did. 

    1.  Right click on the device, Properties, Display Audio(will take several screens to get to the !).  Update Driver, Choose From List, Imaging, GENERIC 1394...  Device really doesn't need the driver but the annoying ! goes away.
