Sorry, I'm having trouble understanding your english- do you mean to say that the iSight simply does not work? As in the OS cannot detect it? And what language do you speak- someone here may be able to speak it.

That's a good idea, I could give translating German a go

Roberto is a common name in both Italian and Spanish speaking countries, luckily I speak both.

if you go under the Apple Menu, select "About this Mac..." then click on "More Info..." this starts up System Profiler. In the list on the left under Hardware, select "USB" - see if the iSight camera is listed as one of the devices connected to the USB bus. Note that there are internal devices like the iSight connected to the USB, not just the external ports.

if it's not there, it's possible the iSight hardware has died. on the other hand, there's still chance it may be software related. but anyhow I'd start first by checking System Profiler, then go from there...

p.s. Apple has some basic iSight debugging tips here - for example you could try resetting the SMC/PMU. try some of the suggestions there and report back on the results. good luck.

For "rab777hp: Ciao,leggendo i vari forum, ho scoperto che probabilmente ho il modulo iSight fuori uso, dal momento che smontare il Macbook non si fa in dieci minuti, ho deciso di acquistare un modulo usato ma funzionante.Appena l'avrò ricevuto smonterò il tutto.Come ho cercato di scrivere, il computer non riconosce iSight, come se non esistesse e vane sono state le varie procedure per rilevare la periferica.Grazie Roby

Questo era in Macosxhints.com oggi, non so se sa come fare questo, ma molti dicono che è la soluzione della problema, che è comune ora con molti personi che hanno Snow Leopard.

Mi dispiace se non puó comprendere bene il mio italiano, non sono fluente ancora.
