Hi thuglife,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried installing the Vista driver in compatibility mode. Info here if needed: Compatibility Mode

Hope this helps.

Hey thuglife.
Which release version of 7 are you running...7100?
Some of the earlier versions of the beta didn't have as much success (IMHO) with printers and other peripherals like TV tuner cards etc, as later beta builds.

Your welcome, thuglife. And I know I'm old, but you don't have to rub it in.

Good luck.

Driver

I was having the same problem, but they don't provide windows 7 drivers for the L300 series. However, I did find a 64 bit windows 7 driver for the chicony webcam that works for me. The Driver was released for the Satellite A-305-s6905, but it works just fine on my L300D. The Link is:

After installing it my camera runs just like it did in Vista. Hope this helps you!
