    Apparently we aren't the only one having the same problem. It looks like it has to deal with Leapord and those that don't have it.

      If your friend has a Dell, then they're presumably using AIM to video-chat with you through iChat?

      iChat and AIM have always been flaky - sometimes they work, sometimes nothing. Leopard 10.5.2 (due any day now) should fix a BUNCH of bugs in Leopard, so iChat may work better then.

      If you want a PC to Mac video-conference, Skype is the most robust connection by far.

        Thanks Cspanos. I'll try that. You are correct in him using AIM for his video chat and we kept getting the same errors.

          I am strongly considering purchasing Apple's Time Capsule. This product will wirelessly sync with my iMac and back up the entire drive, including both operating systems. I was thinking that if the hard drive suffers a mechanical crash in the iMac, it would take me hours along with days to completely restore everything. $300 for the 500GB model should suffice. This device will probably work with Apple TV, so I am in a way purchasing for the future. My only concern is that the price may drop precipitiously.

            That thing is nice but a little pricey, any NAS unit will work, the computer has the software to make easy backups, the newest OSX anyways, LeCei 500GB NAS is $185 1TB $220.

            I do like apple stuff better if I have the money but in this case idt it matters that much.
