I've been trying to run my QuickCam on my powerbook 520 with no success for
more than a month now. It is clear that the Cam is fine because it runs on
my other Macs. So, after sending it back to Connectix, waiting, discussing,
talking to a lot of people at Connectix, etc., the conclusion is that the
PowerPort/Mercury internal modem on my 520 seems to create some conflict
that prevents the QuickCom from working. The folks at Connectix think so,
too. I do have a jump cable, already cleared P-Ram, etc. Nothing works.
Has anyone run a QuickCam on 520 with an internal modem successfully?
