    Under the movie tab the record button is grayed out. I do have a camera on my SZ and it seems to take pictures just fine. I cant figure out why this button doesnt work.

    Guys I have a problem and need help. I am using sony vgn sz 430 N/B with Vista. The camera capture utility that came with my machine could not record movies. hence i updated the camera capture utility from the sony site. now after the update, I cant find the camera capture utility software icon in the start-programme menu or anywhere else. First there was no video ..... now there is no software all together!! What do you all suggest I do?

    Go to Vaio Recovery Center and see if it offers re-installation of Vaio Camera Utility.

    Adnan,

    Download the utility from Sony's FTP site here

    You'll have to download the whole utlities pack and extract the camera utility from it.
