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.

How can i use built in camera in sony vaio vgn-ns230e as i can not find the cam after changing to windows 7


Windows 7 has no built in webcam software like Windows XP did. It will still work in Skype like normal, but you must download 3rd party webcam software to view your webcam for anything other than video calls.

You have download the drivers for both the webcam and inbuilt buttons from the b/m link:

Your category is CAMERA and Sony Applications.

I changed window vesta to 7 now my vgncr42 laptop's webcam and bluetooth dose not work how to download drivers for it


I'm assuming you changed to Win 7 Home Basic or Premium 32bit System.

First we have to figure out which VGN-CR420 model you have, to do this look on the bottom of your VAIO for the Model/Serial Number tag. On it you should see something like this:

1. VGN-CR420E
2. VGN-CR420E/L
3. VGN-CR420E/N
4. VGN-CR420E/P
5. VGN-CR420E/R
6. VGN-CR420E/W

Now that we have the model #, we can get your drivers.

First we will get your Webcam drivers:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/index.pl (click link)

Now were at Sony eSupport, go to "Software Drivers" (leftside middle of page) click on it. > Option 1. > Choose Country if not USA > Type in Model: VGN-CR420E (use your on model) then click "Continue" > Select Your Operating System > Now we are on your VAIO's page. Look for Camera then click it, the driver file is the "WebCam Companion software" download to you desktop. (easier to find) Open install, Done!

There is other good stuff here so bookmark this page!!!

Now for your Bluetooth driver:

http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php

Read all instructions then click "Download Now" save to desktop. Open > install > done!

I change my windows too windows7,and my webcam


hi!
It's quite possible that Windows 7 does not "know" your webcam, so you need to install a webcam driver.
You can find all hardware drivers for your laptop here: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-CS118E (under Camera section)

Just download and install your webcam driver (I advice to check if other device drivers are up to date too) then reboot and it should work.

SONY VAIO VGN-CR520D MY PROBLEM IS WITH MY WEB CAM, NO WORK WITH WIN7


Hi carlosoaj,

You need to re-install the Camera Driver after the installation of the Windows 7 Operating System in the computer. As the Windows Vista Drivers are compatible with Windows 7 Operating System, you can try installing those Driver.

Please download the Camera Driver here

Please download the file to a folder in the Computer. Then, please open the folder where the files is downloaded and double click on it to begin the installation. Please follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation process. After installation, restart the Computer for the settings to take the effect.

After that, install the Windows 7 Camera Applications in the Computer. You can download the Windows 7 Camera Applications from the below link.

WebCam Companion Software

Magic-i Visual Effects Software

Please download and install the Software in the computer. Make sure that you restart the Computer after each installation for the settings to take the effect. Then, please click "Start", "All Programs" and click the "WebCam Companion" to open the Camera Application and use the Camera.

Hope this helps...
