I have a Mid-2010 Macbook Pro running Mountain Lion (10.8.2) and I purchased a Logitech C615 webcam because I read it is compatible with Mac. I installed the Logitech Camera Software, opened it and the camera worked for that first session, but when I opened the Logitech software later it immediately crashed and output a diagnostics log. I've tried uninstalling the Logitech software, restarting and re-plugging in the USB with no luck. I've tried plugging the camera's USB cable into my D-link USB hub as well as straight into the Macbook Pro itself. The camera goes undetected in all cases.

Any idea as to how I can fix this?

I ended up installing the macam driver, which works but is not very stable.

Macam is a user space USB Webcam driver, supporting Aiptek, 3com, Phillips, Creative, Dexxa, DigitalDream, Dolphin Peripherals, IDT, Intel, Kensington, Lifeview, Logitech, and many other Webcams.

Could you possibly link to the driver software download page, so future visitors can install this? – Ethan Lee Nov 21 '12 at 1:29
