    This is what happened ; "the folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the foldercontains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for 32 - bit systems."



    Cheers.

    You need to start a driver installer. If you cannot start the driver from cd, then download the driver.

    Here is the link.

You should download the drivers BEFORE you change the OS and maybe put them on a flash drive or burn them to a CD.

You can get them direct from the DELL site.

It maybe that your XP disc does not recognise a SATA drive and for that reason you should use the F6 option whilst booting from the XP setup disk and point it to the CD or flash drive.

From then on you should be able to format the disck.

Some of the dells are a little tricky that way.

You may also have to change the bios option as for sata type
I have had to do this on a few dell laptops.to down grade from vista to XP

Im trying to install an old printer on a new vista comp w/o disks


Windows Vista" is your operating system.
I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed.
Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab.
I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in.
I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)
