Go to the manufacturers web site to see if they have a driver for Vista,
but you may also be able to run it in "compatibility mode".
Not all older programs will work under Vista.
Software vendors are working to release Vista-compatible versions everday but in the mean time you can run the program in "Compatibility Mode."To do so:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Location the programs folder(My computerC:Program filesPhillips) and find the executable.
  3. Right click the executable and click the Properties option.
  4. Select the Compatibility tab.
  5. Select the Run This Program in Compatibility Mode option.
  6. From the drop-down list, choose the operating system you ran before upgrading to Vista or just go with XP if unknown,you can always change it again..
  7. If necessary, select the option to run the program as an administrator.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Start your program!

CD supply installation device manager,media converter


If you have Windows Vista, you will need to get these pieces of software from www.usasupport.philips.com, since the ones from the installation CD will not work (you may still have to do this is you have XP and the CD is damaged). If you have a Macintosh, none of the software is compatilbe with Macintosh even though the computer may recognize the device.

How can i install windows xp sp3 in compaq presario cq60-104tu.


Ok it must be one of this problems:

1) you had vista, you wanted xp for whatever reason. you are doing a fresh install using the service pack 3 disk. there is hardware combatiblity issues and must stay with vista. this is becoming more common with the life of xp coming to an end.

2) you had xp and are reinstalling and hardware has failed.

3) you had service pack 2 or before and are updating your service pack and there is some issue with hardware or software.

Mute button freezes my computer


If its a laptop and it came with vista, its most likely XP isnt compatible witht the hardware do to that it was designed for VISTA.

Try going to the laptop companies website and searching for drivers for it that are XP instead of vista and install them.

You bassically downgraded the machine so XP doesnt know how to use your hardware till you install XP drivers for it.

Good Luck

Does not recognize


Ahh - you have Vista! You MUST get the newer version of the software from www.usasupport.philips.com. Enter your model number and go to the "software & drivers" section. Download the updated version of the device/firmware manager. Once the Vista-compatible version of the software is installed, then you can go to the Update tab and the firmware upgrade that you need will be installed - you will not get the "your player's firmware is already up to date message."
