How to get toshiba satellite m200 built in camera to work

A very detail article that i found from the Toshiba Forum.


A205-S7464 with Windows Vista Home Premium (English)

(be patient with my poor english, please)

The problem was in the .INF file of the camera driver named "casflr.inf". The "ClassGUID" is incorrect to register the driver. We need correct then manually.

The Problem:

1) Windows Vista Home Premium (ENGLISH) installed

2) After install OS, in Control Panel, Device Manager, appears under Another Devices / Chicony USB 2.0 Camera (to install a driver)

3) Trying to install or update the driver by Web doesn't work and trying by browser my computer for device driver.../ Let me pick from a list of device driver... USB Device... etc... doesn't work too.

4) After Installing the last software device driver from Toshiba Support Page:

you have a error message, something like "Camera does not work. Restart camera or computer"...

5) And after you installed the Software Driver from Toshiba, trying update the driver on Device Manager, by browser my computer for device driver.../ Let me pick from a list of device driver... USB Device... choosing one of the Chicony USB 2.0 Camera we have a error message like...

"The Register Class for this device were incorrect" (may be different...)

If you have all this "problems" in sequence... you need to do 3 things. One in Windows Vista Register file, other in .INF file of the camera driver and them update the driver again. It's easy.

The Steps...

1) In Start Search digit "regedt32.exe", run the program to edit register.

2) Find this key below:



In Edit Menu, click in Find, digit "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera", press enter

you will find a sub-key


3) Immediately above of the first KEY, you have another KEY:


with another sub-key \SN0001, click them.

4) Find in the right window the GWord named "ClassGUID", click them twice and Copy the value in this window (in my computer is {36fc9e60-c465-11cf-8056-444553540000} ), COPY THEN...

Here is the correct class ID to register the device driver for Chicony USB 2.0 Camera. Now we are going to correct it in .INF file. Remember that we had a incorrect class register error message trying to update the driver before.

You need installed the last version of Toshiba Support Software Driver for Chicony USB 2.0 Camera. In my case I download this in:

5) Then Open the install folder of the software "C:\Program Files\Camera Assistant Software for Toshiba\driver\32bit\" and edit the file "casflr.inf". Just Open to Edit it.

In firsts line you have this:


6) REPLACE the line or COMMENT it (put ";" in the beginning of the line) that contain "ClassGUID":


7) Now put a new line after the older line with the correct class ID that we found in the register


You will have something like this:


Press Crtl+S -> Save the file.

8) Now repeat the update driver steps in Control Panel / Device Manager / Another Devices... Chicony USB 2.0 Camera... right mouse click... Update Driver... Browser my computer for device driver.../ Let me pick from a list of device driver... USB Device...

Will appear 2 or 3 devices to choose, one of these do not have an icon before it and the name is different like "Chicony USB Camera", these is the correct one. Click then! Install it.

An error message of "non sign driver" will appear. Click in Continue.

If a fail message appears, REPEAT THE UPDATE STEPS AGAIN.

Just It!!

Now we have a new "Universal Serial Bus controllers" named Chicony USB 2.0 Camera working!
