Can I use alohabob to go from Windowsxp to Windows 10


You might be able to move specific applications or software from a Windows XP computer to a Windows 10 computer, using that software. But you cannot go from Windows XP to 10 on the same computer. The hardware of the Windows XP machine, unless you downgraded the OS from Windows 7 or 8 to XP, was NOT designed to work with a operating system higher than XP. You can only upgraded a Windows 7 or 8 computer to Windows 10 (not that you would want to as the Windows 10 system is useless junk).


One of the reason that Microsoft offered the Windows 10 free was that people using 7 would not ditch their old computers to buy a new one fitted with windows 10. However to get around the problem of not having new hardware. They had to fudge and bodge the Windows 10 software to make it work on hardware designed for Windows 7.
So basically it's rubbish because corners were cut.

360 desktop wit Window Xp. Hardware (CDROM -PLDS DH-16AAS DVDRW) installing problem


Two items on a single IDE ribbon cable require a master and a slave. The next step is to let BIOS know of the drive. Press F2 during boot and check. Look for it were other drives are, and there maybe a auto select / discovery option. It must show in BIOS, or there is no going forward.

If BIOS sees it and XP does not. Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Walla CD-ROM in the house.

If none of this works. Test another cable, CD-ROM, or computer. Oh yea, virus protection. Do a thorough scan. This was a common problem back in the day.

I cam't install driver for windows 7


The problem with Windows 7 as you have found out is that older Windows (XP and back) based hardware drivers do not work on windows 7. There is seldom a fix other than just buying new hardware with drivers that work with Windows 7. I would google this and see if any fix shows up at the Microsoft support site that may offer a work around for the problem. I have an older printer that would not work with 7, I found that by using the basic driver of new model of my printer it would work, but without any special features, just prints and nothing else. I ended up buying a new Canon printer (less than $75.00) in the end so I could use the photo features.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder


Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Recently upgraded my pc to windows 7 from windows xp professional. now my scanner does not work, not compatible with windows 7.. are there any drivers available that are compatible with windows 7


BenQ apparently never updated drivers for this hardware to work un a Windows 7 environment. I do not have this scanner myself, but I did come accross a site that indicated many were having luck with a driver found there. I was unable to test it as I lack the hardware. I do not know it it will work for you or not, but I offer the info for you to investigate to see if you can get it to work in Windows 7. The site is: http://www.bioticaindia.com/benq-s2w-4300u.html

Lastly, if your version of Windows 7 is "Pro" or "Ultimate", it supports "Windows Virtual PC." Windows Virtual PC is a fully *free*, fully functional licensed copy of Windows XP Pro direct from Microsoft that "runs" in Windows 7. You can install applications and hardware in the Vitual PC just as if it were another computer. Follow the Virtual PC link above to learn more about it. You may be able to breathe new life into your BenQ scanner running it in the Virtual PC, if the driver mentioned in the first paragraph doesn't work for you.

Good luck! Please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful - thanks!

When i connect my drive to my pc using windows xp in show Found new hardware searches for drivers and completes the search. but when i go to my computer it does not show up


Windows XP can only see up to 120GB. If you can partition the drive in 4 X120GB and 20GB XP will see five drives. If you need to use the full 500GB, you will need to upgrade to XP with SP3 or Windows 7
