not wroking on my windows 7 ultimate

Neither Logitech nor Microsoft wrote drivers for this webcam for Windows 7.

As a result, it is not supported by Windows 7 and will most likely never be supported.

It's my suspicion that Microsoft gets kick-backs for not supporting old hardware so the peripheral makers can make money selling new equipment.

I have the ccd crv-608 and don't have the drivers. I have Windows 7

The available drivers for the CCD-TRV608 (the CCD-CRV608 isn't listed at Sony are here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=CCDTRV608&LOC=3 . These are for Vista and older versions of Windows; however I can't tell if the 64-bit version is supported.

With Windows 7, try the Vista driver.in the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer and choose Properties. Set the program to always run as compatible with the older version of Windows. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run As Administrator. This may or may not work.

If that doesn't work, you should try a computer with a version of Windows that is compatible with the drivers from Sony. This will always work. You can use a physical computer (either a second computer or a dual boot computer) or a virtual computer. In the case of Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can do this for free. Download and install Microsoft's Virtual PC and the XP mode. Install the camera drivers in the XP computer as if it were the only machine. (You will need to save files to optical or other removable media to share them with the Win7 computer.) For all other options, you will need a valid copy of an older version of Windows. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.)

I hope this helps.

The Intel CS430 worked on XP, but wont work on Windows 7

The final version of Windows 7 has not been released yet, you most likely have the RC copy of Windows 7 (ie Release Candidate - final beta version just before official release) the RC is available to anyone to download and test.
The problem is that not all device drivers are avaiable and if you cannot get a Windows 7 version from the manufacturer's WEB site at this stage, you have to wait until it is available.
