Unresolved USB audio bug in Mac OS X 10.4.10
There is an unresolved third-party webcam bug that cropped up with Mac OS X 10.4.10. This bug causes third-party web cams to no longer be detected as USB audio devices. The OS and no application (save Parallels) can utilize audio. It appears to be an Intel-only issue. A month after reporting it (and having it confirmed by Apple), there is still no resolution.
