Well it would certainly involve cutting the connector off and wiring in a USB controller and port, then praying that you did it right.... if you can find a wiring schematic, I'd say go for it.

Why would he have to cut wires on a USB webcam in order to plug it into a USB-equipped Macintosh?

i would like to know if there is a possible way of using my Sony Eyetoy USB camera for my Imac G5 with mac osx.
These guys have USB drivers for many USB webcams, and the page says "in progress" with reference to the EyeToy -- promising, at least:

http://webcam-osx.sourceforge.net/

These guys also have drivers for many USB webcams, but none for the EyeToy:

So, as of now, it doesn't look like drivers for the EyeToy have been written for OS X yet.

Wow, my bad. I totally forgot that the EyeToy was USB. My brain saw it with a PS2 controller port.

Sad, since I was working at a videogame store when they came out.... I am shamed.

Ok. Well here's the thing. That's not altogether true.
The computer doesn't recognize it without the Macam driver.
And even then, It opens in the Macam program but not in IChat or IMovie.
Then when I downloaded a patch called IChatUSBCam, it works sometimes in IChat with certain people & not with others. It NEVER works with IMovie. Without downloading these programs I get nothing.
The IChat USBCam is a free 7 day trial. The entire program is $10. to buy. But if it only works with some people, I'm better off just buying a new Webcam that ALWAYS works in IChat & IMovie.
