Before I even bought a QuickCam, the folks at Connectix told me that there
is a good chance that the camera would not work on the Powerbook 500 series
without an ADB cable. This is apparently due to insufficient power in the
serial port.
I have since bought the camera and sure enough it did not work on my
Powerbook 540c. I am now waiting for the ADB cable.
Has anyone tried tha above configuration with and without cable? I heard
rumors that even with the cables some 500 PB series might work. Is that
