Sony VAIO vgn-cr220e webcam doesn't work

 Blocked Profile -
I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on my Sony Vaio VGN-CR220E. I have tried the solution below. I downloaded the "Original Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6 driver" but when I tried to install it, it says "This update can only run on Windows Vista".

Any other solution?
Thank you very much!

If you have bought your Sony Vaio VGN-CR220E with Vista and now you are installed Windows 7, your camera will not work.

Follow these steps:

* 1. Click on the link below:

* 2. At "Select your operating system" drop down menu, select "Microsoft Windows vista home premium"
* 3. Under the "sort files by type (optional)" select "Camera" from the drop down menu. Or you can directly expand the "Camera - 2 flies" from the list of "Results for VGN-CR220E".
* 4. Download the "Original Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC6 driver".
o Save the file on the desktop or temp folder and install it.
* 5. Go back to the "select your operating system" drop down menu, and select "Microsoft Windows 7" - whichever version you are using, basic or home premium etc.
* 6. Under the "Sort files by type" select "camera" . or you can directly expand "camera - 2 files" from the list of results for VGN-CR220E as you did before on step 3.
* 7. Download those two files (Camera capture utility and Webcam companion". Save the files and install them.

Now you are all set. Restart and enjoy your camera
