Your web cam may not be compatible with the Windows operating system and will have to be run in either Windows XP mode or you will have to contact the manufacturers site to update the drivers for your camera. This is done in the device manager. Windows 7 also has a feature that will automatically update the drivers if they are available. If not then you will have to run you camera in the XP or Vista mode.
I hope this helps. Have great day>

Motion eye doesn't work on Windows 7 Sony Vaio VGN-FZ220U


Your original Sony customised version of Windows included some dedicated webcam software plus webcam drivers. It is probable that you need both the software and the drivers from the Sony support website. The question is will the software work without you having a Sony customised version of Windows. Usually, it will work so try downloading and installing them. Check here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFZ220U&upd_id=3092&os_group_id=10

And here. Study the page carefully to make sure you've chosen the correct operating system and that you have expanded the view by clicking "Open File List", etc.

Sony vaio vgn fz11m webcam


Congratulation for user of Sony VAIO VGN-FZ11M model: PCG-381M laptop because now they can install windows 7 professional 32bit and use webcam. Sony official website doesn't provide the drivers for windows 7 but if you install VISA drivers, it will work fine except webcam (as might be you knew). But you don't worry and download webcam drivers from this link and install it:-

How do i upgrade my system to windows 7


Sony has yet to support Windows 7 on the VAIO VGC-RB42G. I would strongly suggest not to try to install W7 on that machine. Sony is a _very_ proprietary equipment. There is a very good chance that you won't be able to obtain the neccessary drivers nor W7 having the correct drivers available. Generic drivers don't usually work on Sony equipment and vice versa. If you are determined to try it, it would be best to contact Sony first: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=CONTACT

That said, the first step to upgrading any computer to W7 is to run the upgrade advisor:
http://windows.microsoft.com/upgradeadvisor

The next step, especially for a Sony is to visit the website and check for software upgrades and possible BIOS upgrades that are needed _before_ installing W7. In your case I would contact them directly.

Be sure to back up all your data. Copy it to CD's, DVD's, an external hard drive, or a flash drive, or another internal hard drive.

Sony webcam no longer works with windows 7


1. The drivers for this Web camera may not be developed for Windows 7 64 bit by the manufacturer.
You will either have to purchase a new camera to be compatible with Windows 7 or Vista 64.
This is also true for your SD card reader.
