I use mine in Vista with USB cable, Samsung Vista driver which works in Device Manager, but not Windows Vista Scanners and Cameras. I loaded ULead 6.0 which comes with the camera, and have no problems. This is not the way I want it to work, but it does allow me to use my camera. I would much rather Capture to Microsoft Windows Movie Maker. I do love this camera, seems they are still selling them, so hopefully Samsung with fix the driver. Microsoft lists it as Microsoft Certified Compatible? Not quite.

You shouldn't need drivers, it should work with Windows Movie Maker automatically but i've found that this camera DOES NOT TRANSFER VIDEO WITH A USB cable, regardless of what every BestBuy employee tells you. The USB only transfers still pictures from the memory card. The instruction manual is not definitive on this, but most cameras that are MiniDV that have both USB and IEEE1394 ports like this one operate similarly. Get a firewire cable and a firewire card on your pc and you'll be fine. If you use a MAC, quicktime pro and imovie will also transfer videos using only a firewire connection. i's really lame, but lots of cameras that have both usb and 1394 ports on them work this way.

Install problem

Run the Setup.exe file in compatability mode (right-click the setup.exe icon and select properties, then select compatability and choose a 32 bit version of XP). The game was not tested on 64-bit Vista and isn't likely to work outside of 32 bit compatability mode.

Hello.. The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
In adition you can check for any available patches here.

HP PSC 2350 Printer/Scanner & just purchased a new computer (Windows Vista) & the discs I have for this printer/scanner only support Windows 2000, XP not Vista.

You can set compatability to windows 2000. I presume you have vista. start menu. control panel, programs... then you will see set compatability or similiar (my control panel won't open at the moment). use the wizard to walk you thru the steps. select the program you are having issues with. It will allow you to run the program as win 2000 compatability.

I have just installed a new computer with Windows Vista. I am getting an advisory that there are compatability problems with Vista and the Canon iP1700 printer. C an you advise?

There are several things you can try if you have a device that is not working correctly:.
Please check this link. You will find the driver for vista
• Check if updated drivers are available through Windows Update. When you check Windows Update, click View available updates to determine if an updated driver is available for your device. For more information, see Install Windows updates.
• Make sure that the hardware device is compatible with your computer and with your version of Windows. If the device is not compatible, you will need to find the correct driver. Check the information that came with your device. You can also search for the device on the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) website. This website contains a comprehensive list of computers and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.
• Many devices require special drivers to work properly. Be sure that you have installed any software discs that came with the device.
• Restart the computer. Restarting might be necessary if the driver requires it or if the driver did not install correctly.
• If the device is a universal serial bus (USB) device, disconnect it and then plug it in to a different USB port. Windows should detect the device and install the drivers, and will notify you if the device drivers did not install properly.
If this does not work please come back to me
