Computer does not recognise Scanner -- why not?


How old is the scanner? did you read for what Windows version it was made in the first place?
If it is for an older OS then Windows7 and you are using Windows 7 or higher, you ran out of luck.
Always first install the software that came with the device. The driver needed for the device is supposed to be on the install disk.

You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems. So to make sure your hardware is compatible with the OS. Check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.

So most of the time the drivers that came with your tape drive, could be used with the operating systems of that time. Till Windows XP, you could install drivers yourself, even old and outdated drivers most of the time worked. In the newer OS'n you ran out of luck.

What is windows vista?


Windows Vista is Microsoft's latest operating system, their replacement for Windows XP. Because it's very different from XP, some hardware and software is not compatible. Computer systems that will work with Vista have that sticker so you know Vista will install correctly.

I intalled windows vista on my laptop but i cant get any sound driver to work with it


I have an HP DV1150US, and just bought a Toshiba M305D, 64 bit dual core AMD laptop with Vista. You are actually "Downgrading" by going to Vista, your DV machine doesn't have the CPU power or memory (unless you spent several hundred dollars to bump up the RAM).   If you bought the software with a credit card, return it (they will say you can't, but make them "receive" it ) as defective (Vista is defective as it doesn't support tons of things that work in XP, there is no legitimate technical reason for this) and then arbitrate with your credit card company to get the charge for the software refunded. If everyone did this, then MicroSoft would not produce such incompatible software. The public has had the wool pulled over their eyes ... if you bought a toaster, and it made beautiful toast 39 out of 40 times ... and in 1 out of 40 times, the bread came out on fire ... you'd return it right?  Vista'=flaming bread about 3% of the time.
I have used literally dozens of OS in 30 years as a software professional, and I can say with confidence, that your problems with Vista are just beginning.  You may be happy with Vista and the tens upon tens of hours it takes to get productive again IF and only IF you are a serious Microsoft zealot.
Look at what millions of other users say about moving from XP to Vista.  Microsoft has a policy for Corporate customers only, that if they buy an Vista machine,  they have rights to change (really upgrade) to XP for free (look it up).   
If you stick with Vista, you are on a never ending MicroSoft treadmill to buy new hardware that works with your new OS, then be forced into another new operating system (MS will drop support for Vista and force you to Windows 7 faster than a hot potato)  when they refuse to support Vista read:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7.
If you stick with Vista and have any significant investment in prior software ... you are going to have to replace a portion of it.  My 4 year old $600 Office XP Pro package for one ... doesn't work on Vista!!!
If you have to have Vista,  you can resurrect your XP OS and install Sun's FREE VirtualBox and run Vista as a "Guest Operating System" within XP !!!   Then you can "play" with Vista to your hearts content, and when you really need something to work (read: your hardware or your existing software), you can use the native XP.    Oh yeah ... you are going to need a new machine to do this, but you would need that for Vista anyway.   For $700 at BestBuy, you can get a Toshiba M305D with 2 Core 64 Bit AMD CPU, 4GB Ram and Vista Premium aldeady installed 160GB or so drive ... much less that it would cost you to upgrade your DV1000 for just the RAM and Drive.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?


when you were installing the software did a taskbar pop up appear and tell you that hardware was found, and then proceeded to install the cam and inform you that the Logitech STX is now installed and ready for use? If not then the cam may need to be tried in another usb port as of yet it has not been recognised by windows. Also if this is being used on a laptop, sometimes there is not enough power amps being sent be the usb port to recognise, again trying a different port may solve that. If all else fails re install the software again, but make sure windows is allowing the cam to work, as sometimes there is an updater programme that works in conjunction with the cam to update drivers etc, this will probably be being dissalowed by either windows or your internet security programme and any part of the software that is being blocked may be stopping your cam also.
