  • PS2 Eyetoy as camera on carputer...works!

    For those of you that have a Eyetoy for your PS2, you can use it as a camera on the carputer. Its USB and the framerates are great (60fps+). Just some info i thought someone could use. It may not be the best, but im not too familiar what else is out there for car cameras.

    Here is all the drivers and video capturing you need.

    It works because the Eyetoy is essentially just a webcam.

        Anyone knows if any of the 3 EyeToy models for PS2 is better than the others for a carpc cam?
        It seems the newer model is different from the others in it is silver and smaller but couldn't find any information on the chip specifications.

          I bought the silver one (SCEH-0004) new in box and works great. Theres only one issue I have experienced in that sometimes winxp will say that the usb device malfunctioned and wont recognize it. Disabling and re-enabling the device or usb hub where is connected wont work. It will only start working again after unplugging it and plugging back.
          To avoid having to turn the car off to reset the eyetoy I added a normally close pushbutton to the eyetoy that will reset the device when pushed. That solved my problem and I no longer have to turn the carputer and car off to reset the device.
