Windows 7: sony visual communication camera vgp-vcc2

11 Feb 2011   #11

windows 7

I have a similar problem, I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ330P Laptop, I installed Win 7 a few months ago and have had trouble with the web cam ever since. Somehow the Microphone above the screen is on at FULL Level and creates a nasty feedback. Quick fix was to plug in 3.5mm cord into the jack.
I have tried all settings to adjust the microphone, but it will not quit. I can not find the settings to get into the web camera and I am assuming it is a driver issue as the Sony site still does not list this model as compatible for Win 7. I tried the Vista driver, but no difference...
Any chance of correcting this?

Device Manager shows all is well and working properly.

windows 7 professional 64 bit

Hi, any news about the driver for the VCC2 ?
I have a SZ340P, and the device ids are:

I tried all and every driver available online, but none of them work. I also tried to extract driver from installer that only worked on Vista or XP compatibility mode but no luck.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate

I believe I have found the solution after a lot of googling.

I have a sony vaio VGN SZ32GP. I did a clean install. Windows 7 Ultimate.

Sony VGN-SZ Notebook Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC2 Driver - Windows 2000/XP 32bit Download | Sony

I downloaded XP drivers from the link above.
I then right clicked on the downloaded file, selected properties, under the compatibility tab I chose "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (SP2)"

I checked on "Run this program as an administrator" as well. Afters I ran the .exe installation file.

Moments later under Device Manager, there was an "Imaging Devices" section, and within that" Sony Visual Communication Camera VGP-VCC2".

Tested on Skype. I downloaded ArcSoft Web Cam Companion 2 as well.
Hope this helps and applies to old Sony Vaio VGN-SZ32 Series notebooks.

Hi, thanks for posting. I had already tried that driver, but cant install it on my 64bit, since it is a 32bit driver.
