Sony Laptops: 'Motion Eye' camera by colt22[_3_]
My Sony Vaio VGN-120C has a built-in camera camera called 'Motion Eye'.Even since I installed vista x64, the camera is useless as Sony does not make a 64 bit driver for it. Does anyone know who the underlying manufacturer of this camera is so I can hopefully track down the right driver for it thanks alot..would like to get this thing working finally!

Sony MPEG RealTime Encoder Board? by ColTom2
Hi: Does anyone know of a Vista driver applicable Sony MPEG RealTime Encoder Board or a work around so that I can upgrade my Sony Desktop VGC-RA716G with MCE(2005) to Vista? If not, how would I go about finding a suitable hardware replacement for this board i.e. mfg, model/part number that would work with Vista? I am not familiar at all with hardware in this area, as you might tell.

DVD drive tray opens when clicked in Explorer by com64

If I'm going to put a disc in I'll use the button on...
