question

i have the mic/scope what all is needed for this to work on my computer?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just plugged the scope into my Apple computer, which powers it up. There's a CD for software to install. Also works simply with Apple's PhotoBooth. I'm still learning, haven't studied it in detail, but it's a nice device.
