iChat/iSight can be interfered with by wireless mice
Authored by: easco on Jul 31, '03 02:10:53PM

I had a similar problem where iChat would complain about the firewire device being in use. However, I had an iPod dock and the iSight both plugged into the computer. I discovered that if I took the iPod out of the dock that things worked fine. I eventually solved the problem by plugging both the iPod and the iSight into an external firewire hub. It could be that the cable separation provided by the position of the hub solved the problem as well, but I haven't been able to reproduce the problem by moving things around yet.

FWIW, I also use a wireless trackball.
