Description

After installing built-in isight driver in XP guest (on a macBook), the cam keeps going in and out from XP guest, as if it is continuosly connected/disconneted. Looks like that OSX host tries to remount cam as soon as it gets connected in XP guest.

I just upgraded to VirtualBox 2.2.2 and it still shows this behavior. I need to bring up Parallels if I want to use my iSight.

I am having the exact same problem! I have a macbook (white one) and the isight camera keeps connecting/disconnecting when I run windows xp sp3 in virtual box. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

I initially had my virtual box see the web cam but it could not complete a driver installation as I could not locate a driver, can anyone point me to the driver being referenced above and I hope to get as far as it dropping in and out, Thanks

I'm getting the connect/disconnect thing and I'm seeing a lot of this in my Console.app logs:

09/10/26 22:47:01 kernel USBF: 48418. 83 IOUSBCompositeDriver[0x44e5900](Built-in iSight) GetFullConfigDescriptor(0) returned NULL

Hope that helps someone a little.
