How to get eyetoy to work on windows 7 64x

#1
Hello everyone !
I think I'm not the only one with this problem. I can't get my eyetoy ( namtai - silver) camera to work on window 7 64x. Does anyone have a solution ? I tried old drivers, drivers for win7 and vista but I just wasted my time. I know that a type of eyetoy camera is like one of the type logitech used to produce, but I don't know which one. Maybe logitech developed a driver for their cam on win7 64x. Eyetoy is to good to be just trown away or replaced by an expensive pc web cam. or ?

How is Logitech involved in this - is your eyetoy camera a product by Logitech, or are you just thinking of a Logitech alternative ?

What is the camera model exactly - is it just Silver Eyetoy Namtai, who is the manufacturer ?

I had my camera already set on xp few years ago. I used a logitech driver, because I found somewhere on the internet an article about ''how to set eyetoy camera on your pc'' and it was explained that a camera from logitech used to have the exact drivers which worked with eyetoy. So if soeone would like to use this logitech camera and the drivers won't work on windows 7 64x, than logitech would release new driver for this type of windows and maybe this drivers will work on eyetoy too. But i don't know anymore which logitech camera is it. I have silver eyetoy usb camera for ps2 (SCEH-0004) . Manufactured by Chicony under agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Which drivers did you use for the eye-toy? Was it these ones?

There's another set here which may be worth a try too:

Thank you for your kindness, but unfortunately I tried out both of given links before and without sucess. I was thinking if i would know where to put the registery in windows sistem files perhaps this would work.

I don't understand this statement, could you elaborate?

I thought if there could be a way to add the driver files manually to the windows sistem folder. I don't know if this is possible.

Which Logitech product driver did you successfully use for the eyetoy, does Logitech have a Vista compatible driver for that product that you could try for your eyetoy on 7?

I forgot the type of logitech camera, but you can see on this page ( Use your EyeToy as a webcam : iPlayPlayStation.com ), that the logitech drivers are given for the eyetoy camera . Both drivers from logitech and from eyetoy are working fine on windows 7 and vista, but not on windows 7 64x but i don't know why. the thing is, when it gives options to manualy select the driver folder, i gave the folder location in, and then he stops because its says windows could not find the right drivers. but on vista and windows 7 works fine, only windows 7 64x can not find it.

It's the same XP driver (Logitech Eyetoy USB Camera Driver - Software Driver Download), which you can try installing on 7 in XP compatibility mode. The chance it'll work is too small though.

I suggest you use your eyetoy on a virtual XP machine.


VirtualBox

Download details: Virtual PC 2007

Download details: VPC 2007 SP1

(Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is not fully compatible with 7, but it works.)
