    Reinstall drivers from Sony.

    Or use generic YAWCAM installation. (YetAnotherWebcam)

    BTW, did you have a recent Windows Update ? ?
  2. Thanks. Yaw cam doesnt work as my comp says no camera device found.

    I updated the driver. Thankfully i see the camera under the imaging device list. But status says "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" and there is a yellow mark on it.

    Interestingly, the camera worked yesterday but went kaput again this morning.


    No, I didnt do any updates.

    Sounds like the device itself is faulty, If it worked yesterday, not today, and no updates to driver.

  4. OK so last nite I did a windows update. Now in the device manager, it show the " sony visual communication camera VGP-VGG6. The driver are "arcsoft" which i presume are a standard. However, when i turn on the camera its say unable to initiate device. Some other program may be using the device"

    I uninstalled it and re installed it but same problem. Any thoughts?
  5. Hi Guys,

    yesterday when i restarted my comp, the driver self installed again and the cam seems to be working fine all over again. Very strange as i did nothing. I had pretty much given up

    Thanks to all of you
