Hasn't worked even with the device id translation on Logitech c910
64 bit system does not load the kext.
not sure about 32.

And please, don't use rapid{censored} as a means of hosting your files.
use mediafire so the rest of us don't get raped.

I am as confused as quite a few others here... I opened the info.plist with textwrangler and there are no fewer than 6 idproduct and 6 idvendor keys... Which 3 of each do you change?
I changed them all and dropped the kext into kext utility rebooted and still have black screens on iChat Photo Booth and really all native apple apps. Skype is about the only thing that actually does work

Logitech C270 UVC I bought today because from what I read these newer models worked out of the box... maybe on Wndows but now on 10.6.5

Please can someone post a sample working kext and use highlighter to highlight what entries need be changed..

Thanks

As of today, Logitech released their own drivers for the C910, and some people have said it works with c510, at least partially. You can check their site and see if it can help with your C310, and please let us know!

Here's the story on 9 to 5 Mac, with links to the files:

Don't know what you're using to edit the plist, (it should be all the same, but using textedit is confusing) but using Pref Setter you just edit the ID's (under IOKitpersonalities) in the tree Fake built-ins ... Device, interface A and B. Not the ones under these tree IOproviderMergeproperties.

So again, under IOKitpersonalities there are tree forks (Fake built-ins something) these you edit. Don't edit the ones further inside on IOproviderMergeproperties.

I hope I'm clear, 'cose it's hard to describe and I don't have them here to give you a screenshot.

I have the logitech 310, how did you get it working? I modified the 3 id locations, and it detects the microphone, but not the camera. Also, the system profiler isnt changing.

I modified the kext, used kext help to install, repaired permissions, and stil nothing.

osx 10.6.6

product 2075
vendor 1133

UPDATE

Rolled back my IOUSBFamily and IOUSBMassStorage and it got it to detect it as an isight. But, it still didnt register in ichat, skype, maccam, anything else

By my system the kext is working.
The only problem is that the microphone is not working with this kext.

Is there a solution for it?


Thx & Greetz
