Logitech is a company that creates keyboards and mice, but it's most well-known for making web cameras. While Logitech caters mostly to Windows users, the company does have a few webcams that work on Mac OS X. If you have a Macbook Pro and don't want to use the built-in iSight camera, you can purchase a Logitech webcam to use instead. To get this camera working, ensure that it will work on Mac OS X and that your drivers and software are up-to-date.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Make sure that your webcam is compatible with Apple computers. Only a handful of Logitech webcams are Mac compatible. You can find this information on the box your webcam came in or on the Logitech website.

  2. 2

    Upgrade your software and drivers. Visit the Support + Downloads page on the Logitech website and select your webcam from the product menu. Find the link that says "Download installation software, drivers, updates and more" and download the necessary components. Save these files to your desktop.

  3. 3

    Uninstall older Logitech components if you have any. This will prevent conflicts between the two versions.

  4. 4

    Install the components you downloaded by double-clicking on them. Follow the installation instructions that appear on-screen.

  5. 5

    Plug your webcam into the USB port on your MacBook Pro. Either clip your webcam to the top of your laptop or place it on a sturdy surface.
