The 6500/225 is a brand new machine. The os (7.5.5) was loaded at the
factory. I never used the apple cam with my old 7100/80av so I don't know
if the problem exists on that machine. I take it, from your posting John,
that it most likely would have. But, the 7100/80av worked great with a
video cam or a connectix cam connected to it with CU. WP never did work
that great.

With the 6500, CU/WP both have problems locking onto the codec when the
apple cam is installed, and show a mostly black image, with a few
horizontal colored stripes. Anyone else use the Apple cam?

Thanks John.
