    Hi, I am trying to use the camera in windows vista ultimate using VMWare fusion 2.0 The drivers are installed and the camera is connected to windows, but I can not use it, I tryed going to control panel > scanners and cameras but it says I have to make sure it is connected to the computer and truned on, I tried also by using the msn messenger > tools > webcam settings but it says it can not detect a camera. I when to Mac os, I am using 10.5.4 with 2 GB RAM (VMWare has 820MB) and tried to open Photo Booth but it can not use the camera. Only when I suspent or shut down the virtual machine is when i can use the camera the on Mac.

    Can anyone help me please

    Thank you,

    Marco D.

    Do other USB devices work in the guest (mouse/keyboard don't count)? Is this 32-bit or 64-bit?

    Only when I suspent or shut down the virtual machine is when i can use the camera the on Mac.

    This part is normal and expected - a USB device (such as the iSight) can only be used by one OS at a time.
