    Windows 7 beta, 64x and Vaio, and Motion Eye Webcam


    Got my motion eye working under Win7 64x.

    Link below for the drivers.
    I have the Vaio SZ650n/c, and all but a few keyboard hotkeys are
    working.

    The volume hotkeys work by default with win7. (maybe in hardware)
    Brightness is available by right-clicking the battery indicator (by
    clock)
    or by running "windows mobility center".

    Also, low level sony stuff in 64x is available here:
    http://www.vaio-link.com/os/vista/64bit/ (only works with firefox for
    me)

    For my SZ650, I had to install the SFEP and SPIC drivers to clear
    device manager. I could not find hot key drivers in 64x.

    Motion eye (Ricoh) drivers here:

    I have the Vaio VGN-CR590 and it also uses a Ricoh Motion Eye built-in
    camera. However, I am unable to find drivers for it that will work with
    Windows 7. It is the only device that doesn't work. I tried installing
    the software that Sony makes available, but I have no luck. I also use
    the one that Windows Update downloads and nothing. Any help is much
    appreciated!

    Thanks

    The drivers you have found may only work in the Win7 RTM release which is
    now available.

    I have the RTM release and it does recognize my camera as an imaging
    device and installs a driver for it automatically, but this driver
    doesn't work. My camera still doesn't work.

    But the Website for you camera may have available Win7 RTM drivers that do
    work that were created after the RTM release was finalized many months ago.

    nope... Sony announced that there will be no support (hardware or
    otherwise) for my model under an operating system other than the one
    that was shipped with my computer originally. I did download that driver
    and tried running it under Windows Vista compatibility mode but that
    wasn't enough. It shows a successful install but the camera gets no
    image. All I get is a black screen. =(
