I have a big problem. I want to start  video CJ of my Simcity4 but neither D3Dgear nore Fraps can see my game. No frames are shown and also pressing the recording button has no effect.

I see OBS doesn't recognize the game at all, but what you can do instead is set the game to windowed mode and record the game as a window. That should work just fine.

    FRAPs works just fine for me on Windows 7. But all of these things may vary based on your hardware/drivers. Have you tried to update your videocard, perhaps your current driver has some compatibility issue.
