Question about Cameras
I am not aware of a Vista driver for the SiPix SC-2300 nor for that matter if it is fully Vista compatible. Sorry.
However, may I offer possibly alternate procedures in using it with Vista:
1. use a memory card reader for the SmartMedia memory card where it will be treated as an external storage device;
2. update/patch your USB drivers preferably from the motherboard manufacturer. Microsoft has acknowledge this issue and has likewise provided their own patch here or here.;
3. since Vista supposedly has drivers for many cameras pre-installed, though they are very basic and often will not allow other features to function fully, you can try auto-detect/install. The idea is to connect your camera to the PC/Laptop without installing the Vista driver CD and 'keep your fingers crossed'; or if asked for driver location, point to the XP CD installer of the SiPix SC-2300 which should of course be inside your CD ROM drive; or
4. force a bare install. Pop in the XP CD but do not install (exit). Rather, open the contents of the CD and look for an ".inf" file, right click to install and see if Vista will take it from there. There night be a couple of them inside the CD.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
