WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE?


Yes, just use Windows 7 Update function to install proper drivers automatically. The drivers provided by Brother on CD do not work, though.

Is this camera compatible with Vista now?


The Quickcam Express is not compatible with Vista. The reason Vista is available on the CD is because it is a standard CD shipped with all Logitech Webcams. Compatibilty specifications would have been available on the packaging. Please see here.

If you have a different camera than the Quickcam Express, then select your camera from this page and see if there is a download for Vista. If not, then you may have to exchange the camera from the point of purchase, if you purchased it recently.

If the camera IS compatible with Vista, then try a clean boot install as outlined in this article.

Let me know how it goes..

Unable to install scanner


Cant find such a scanner, are you sure of the model "performance", If it is not Vista compatable, ie if Epson have not released a Vista driver, then it is not going to work with Vista.

See Epson web and download driver if available, if not change scanner or operating system or purchase software

Check your Epson product CD to see if it already contains Windows Vista drivers. If the CD indicates support for Windows Vista, follow the instructions that came with your Epson product to install your driver and other software.

If your Epson CD does not indicate support for Windows Vista, DO NOT INSERT YOUR EPSON PRODUCT SOFTWARE CD IN YOUR WINDOWS VISTA COMPUTER because the setup program is not compatible with Windows Vista. Instructions for installing additional software from your CD may be available with your driver download.

Note: If you already have ArcSoft PhotoImpression™ 5 installed on your Windows Vista computer, you may need to install a "patch" program. Go to the ArcSoft website to download and install the patch.

Products that are not Vista compatable are not capatable with Vista, who would figure hey!!

If you visit their website specific to the games you have, there should be a compatibility list.

Sounds like it is not compatible but it's worth a check.
