I have found a solution to this problem!!

OK. So-- Like all of you, I had the same exact problem. I upgraded my Sony VAIO VGNFE780G to Windows Vista Home Premium and discovered that my Motion Eye Cam had stopped working.

Here's what I did and hope it works for you all:
1. Visit the Sony Support website. This is the link to my computer's support site for Windows XP. CLICK HERE
2. Click on CAMERA - 2 file(s)
3. From the submenu select Original - Sony® Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC1 Driver
4. Download and execute the file.

It should install and ask for a reset from there... This XP driver works for my combination of OS and computer, if this works for you--please let others know.

Be sure to test the camera after the reboot. You can test HERE.

Good luck!

The first thing you should check is that you don't have any applications open that could be using the camera (ex. MSN, AIM etc are the most likely culprits). Then open My Computer, there should be a section that says "Imaging devices" your Eye should be listed under there. Open that application, if you see a picture then your webcam is good to go. If you get the same error then try reinstalling the driver for the webcam. THis can be done through device manager.

Like all of you, I had the same exact problem, notonly with de camera but with the card reader too.
The solution after reinstaling the drives was to actualize the driver software from the device manager with manual option from: C:\Users\your_username\AppData\Local\Temp
This solution worked in both cases, don't ask me why!

Did u install any other programs anfter your vista instalation? try to uninstall them one by one, My guess is that one of the programs "kidnaped" you camera. By uninstaling one by one you can easy find out witch one it is. After uninstalling one program test your camera. If it works again you that program is the problem.

Good luck

Hi m having vaio(vgn cr11 gh) with windows 7 ultimate camra(motion eye) is not working :(


i assume you upgraded the operating system to windows 7 ultimate using a retail copy of disc.
vgnfj270/b only supports windows xp and vista home basic.

  • this model of vaio doesnt have a camera driver and software for windows 7 ultimate. check this link

How do I use my webcam?


Do you have windows vista, or XP? Try going under your control panel and searching under "webcam" or "camera". Also, if you go into and instant messaging system (AIM, or yahoo messenger), than you can just open up your webcam there. If you have any questions, please contact me at loganhrrs@yahoo.com. God bless.

Windows Vista is not the greatest at working on proprietary machines with drivers intended for XP. Can you get a driver from SONY for the motion eye that supports VISTA? I had Vista on my new machine (Dell) for all of 3 minutes before I uninstalled it and put a brand new copy of XP on. It's stable -- and works. Vista is squirrelly.
