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.

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. =(
