Windows 7 64-bit Driver Info

Pinky's original OS was Windows Vista 32-bit. The OS was upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit and SP3 was applied. Many drivers were automatically applied, but some devices remained driverless. Officially, SONY won't offer Win7 64b drivers for this model. The following drivers were tried and found operative. Note that they are experimental settings and may not work in all cases.

Sony Firmware Extension Parser

Needed for an unrecognized ACPI device. Used the file SODOTH-00228472-1040.exe from another model.

Sony Visual Communications Camera

The camera is a Ricoh model. After searching, found a 12_Camera.zip file.

Synaptics Touchpad

A driver is needed to access some features of the touchpad. Downloaded directly from Synaptics website. Update: The inertia setting was found to cause problems while dragging (it releases the object as you lift your finger from the touchpad), so it was deselected.

Texas Instruments PCIxx12 FlashMedia Card Reader/Writer

TI won't offer the driver directly. Used the file TIDMSC-16368200-1042.exe from another model.

Toshiba Bluetooth Stack

Downloaded from Toshiba support site. Latest version of Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for Windows. File is tc00590500j.exe. WARNING: This is still under review. Appears to install some Trial software. Update: The file indeed installs a trialware. It was uninstalled, as the standard windows bluetooth software provides file transfer functionality.

VAIO Event Service

This is needed to access the media buttons. Used the file SOAVES-70192615-US.exe from another model.

Graphics and Sound seems to be working Ok. Most other functions are operative, so I didn't install any other driver.

Note: Models used for reference: VGN-CR260FE, VGN-CR320E.
