If Michael is using the video IN port, Quickpic won't do him any good.
That program only sets parameters for the QUICKCAM. If you have some kind
of video capture program that is MADE for the capture card that is built
into the Thinkpad, then use this to adjust the settings before trying CU
again. Michael also didn't state which version of CU he is using, but as
it says at=20

If you're using the White Pine version, check=20

but I didn't see the Thinkpad mentioned there.
