Did you look at the video that is on the website? http://rdpartyrobotcdr.sourceforge.net/ ?

When you've executed those steps, you can open your motor and sensors wizard and configure the NXTcam's port as "I2C Custom" or "I2C Custom Fastest", either is fine.

What are you expecting to happen? Be more specific. I can't help you if you are being vague. Describe -exactly- the steps you did. You didn't answer my question about the video; did you watch it?

I went to that website, I downloaded the 3rd Party RobotC Drivers, from that link, I saved the zip file, extracted the files and went to preferences on the RobotC program, clicked on the NXT directories tab, and put that file I just downloaded under the NXT System resource files directory. After this I went to the motors and sensors setup and when I looked to see what types were available under the sensors tab, I looked for the I2C Custom and it was not there

I will ask again... Did you watch the video on the http://rdpartyrobotcdr.sourceforge.net/ website? Specifically from around 1:00 to 1:06

Ok now here is my problem
I am trying to write a program using the camera to identify an object that will be black and one it identifies the object it heads toward it, using the sonar when it is close to the object a claw will close around it, then take it back to an area marked with a different color
I need help with how i should go about doing this because I feel completely lost when it comes to the camera, because other than that I have the program written
