Windows 7: Aiptek camcorder missing a Win7 driver

Aiptek camcorder missing a Win7 driver

Hey all,

I've recently purchased a small handheld camcorder from Aiptek - namely the Aiptek High Speed HD 720p Camcorder, model number V2T6. It's a nifty little device with 2GB internal memory and the option of recording 720p video at 60 fps. Problem is, I just found out that Aiptek never issued a driver for it. It just seemed to automagically work when connected to a machine running Windows XP, but not for Win 7.

When I connect it to my PC, Windows detects it as an "Amba Simple Class" device, but naturally fails to find any drivers for it automatically. I've tried everything from installing other Aiptek camera drivers (which are mostly just programs, not drivers) to trying to connect it while running an XP virtual machine, but to no avail.
"Amba Simple Class" probably means it's running an Ambarella chip, but I couldn't find any drivers for those either. I don't have any XP machines available to me... pretty much anywhere.

I've contacted Aiptek support 3 days ago, but with how broken their website is I doubt their mailbox is even attended to. So now I'm fishing for ideas. Can anyone help? Please?

Hi Handelo,

Welcome to Seven forums.

Please check if this device is compatible with Windows 7 as well. Have you checked this device on a different system and does it works correctly there.

Please post a screenshot of the device manager and my computer so we can check the same:

We would also need the hardware id for the device so we can try and find some information:

Kindly update your system specs here by following this.


Keep us posted with the results so we can advise you further.
