How to Install an Isight Driver in Windows XP

The iSight is a USB Web cam that is designed to work with computers running the Mac OS X operating system. If you install the software drivers required to run the camera on a Windows XP machine, however, you can get the iSight up and running on a non-Apple computer. The CD-ROM that came with the iSight will not work towards this purpose, though--you'll have to download the iSight driver designed for Windows XP from the Internet.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open your Web browser.

  2. 2

    Download the Windows XP iSight driver. Save the .ZIP archive file that these drivers come in to a directory on your hard drive that you have easy access to, such as your desktop.

  3. 3

    Right click on the .ZIP archive file you just downloaded and click "Extract." This will extract the contents of the .ZIP archive file to a new folder in the same directory called "iSight."

  4. 4

    Open the folder called "iSight."

  5. 5

    Copy the files in the folder called "iSight" to your computer's "C:/Windows/System32" directory. This will successfully install the iSight driver on your Windows XP computer.
