Hi I have philips pc camera sic4750 I bought, I could not download throught the cd that came with it thanks


Philips PC Camera SIC4750 is only compatible with OS Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000 & Win XP. (Only 32Bit system ie x86)

FAQ from Philips (Ref. Link)
Question: Can I use my webcam with Windows 7 or Vista ?
Answer:- At the time this webcam was designed, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems did not exist yet. Unfortunately, the internal hardware of the webcam does not match the requirements of these operating systems. Therefore we cannot provide a software upgrade (driver upgrade) to support Windows Vista or Windows 7. We apologize that we are not able to support you in this matter.

Too bad Philip do not provide the drivers if your are Using Vista or Win 7 or any x64Bit system.

I have installed the update for the scanner to work with Windows 7, and now I can't print anything. The error message comes up that says the printer cannot communicate with the computer. I have tried all...


Unplug the printer from your computer first. Then, I suggest you uninstall the Lexmark software following the instructions on this link: http://bit.ly/cu3xvM. After rebooting pc, check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Windows logo Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. To reinstall, download the driver using this link: http://bit.ly/d7Y1Sz (for 32-bit) or this link: http://bit.ly/ccQxge (for 64-bit). If computer will be looking for the Lexmark OCR software when scanning, just insert the installation disk that came with the printer to install the software. Thanks

I have a Canon MP620 Wireless all in one printer - it is printing and copying fine, but whenever I try to scan, it aborts due to scanner driver. It was working perfectly until I installed Windows 7...


If you upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 on the same computer, did you uninstall the MP620 drivers first? If not, the old driver files can be causing the problem.

To correct, go to this link, type "windows 7" in the search box in the center of the screen, and click on the Search button. Now click on the link "ERROR: Cannot communicate with printer after upgrading to Windows 7". You will have a step-by-step procedure for uninstalling the old files and downloading/installing the Windows 7 drivers (printer and scanner).

I am having problems installing canon iP5200 with Windows 7


Did you upgrade the computer from Windows XP to Windows 7? If so, did you uninstall the driver before you did the upgrade? The old driver files may be causing the problem.

To fix, go to this link, and in the search box in the center of the screen type "windows 7" and click on the Search button. Then select the link "ERROR: Cannot communicate with the printer after upgrading to Windows 7". There will be step-by-step directions for resolving your problem.

Error - Scanner could not be initiliazed


I have a MacBook Pro - a year and a half old - and recently upgraded to Leopard, which caused all sorts of problems with my HP 8160 photosmart (which worked pretty well before that).  I downloaded the necessary drivers/softward from HP for Leopard and it worked okay - but than I also started getting the "scanner cannot be initialized" messages (doing scan all wireless).  Anyway, all I did was go to applications, drag the HP softward to the trash and then went back to the HP site and downloaded the software and drivers again, and ran through the simple installation process again and now my scanner works again. Don't know why - but saw the suggestion on another site and it worked for me.  Here is the link to the HP site for software/drivers - select your operating system and it will direct you to the right page.
