If the computer does not have a SATA controller on the motherboard, then you need to purchase a PCI SATA controller and insert it into the PCI expansion slot. You will also need a SATA data cable and a SATA power adapter that converts a 4 wire power connector to a SATA power connector.

My computer verson is win 8.but my iriver install disc supported win xp.98.me.2000.so how could I installed this disc on my computer /


There are a couple options here. First you can try to see if the manufacturer has a driver for that product in Windows 8 on their website. Judging by the requirements (xp, 98, 2000), your product may not be supported on Windows 8 as it is probably and legacy (older) product but you never know as some manufacturers keep drivers up for some of their older products. Second option, is to right click the install file and run it in compatibility mode which is in properties. You can get to properties by right clicking or tapping the icon. Once in properties, click or tap compatibility tab, change the options so it is running in Windows XP mode, and try the install after applying it. This option is not guaranteed but its probably the only shot you have at using the original driver on Windows 8. Best of luck.

Additional drivers


I typically install drivers for the newer OS first and then the older.
Try downloading the Win7 drivers and install them on the Win7 computer. Then install the additional XP drivers.

As far as I can tell, you are right, there is no support for Windows 7 and this card. The card is AGP 8X, which is older technology and I don't know if you can find a AGP card that is going to be compatable with Windows 7. You could try something like this, which is windows 7 compatable:

Cant'r run pyro5 on windows 7. is there a solution other than buying new pyro software?


Yes, but it may be more expensive then buying the new Cakewalk pyro Audio Creator 1.5 ($40). The cost will depend on your version of Windows 7 among other issues.

From the Cakewalk site: "pyro 5 and the other versions listed above will not launch properly under Windows 7. They will not function at all."

The work-around is to run the software such that it thinks you are using an older version of Windows. There are a two ways to do this with one computer: 1) run a dual boot system with Window 7 and an older version of windows, 2) run a virtual computer with an older version of Windows inside the Windows 7 system using Parallels, VMWare or Virtual PC.

In most cases for either option, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can get the virtual computer with XP for free. Download Microsoft's Virtual PC and then the XP mode package. Install them in order and install your Cakewalk software to the XP computer as if that is the only computer. The only issues can come up is that peripherals (like printers) can't be installed on both the real and the virtual computer and sharing files has to be done by saving to optical or other external media.

I'm not sure how much of a learning curve would be involved but there is a free audio editor available. See http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ for more information - the Win7 version is still in beta but works.

I hope this helps.

Can I change my operating system from vista to xp? If I do that what will be its advantage and disadvantage?


Yes you can as long as you have the installation disc with a valid product key. The disadvantage is an older operating system. The advantage is XP is more stable when installed and updated to Service Pack 3.

My windows xp professional did not pass windows validation


From where did you get your computer?
It's a serious breach-of-contract if a computer-store "pre-installed" Windows (XP or Vista or 7) on your computer, and they used a "stolen" product-key.

If a "friend" of yours installed Windows XP Professional, using a "stolen" product-key, they have not done you a favour.

Have your credit-card ready, and follow the on-screen instructions to make an online purchase (from Microsoft) of a valid product-key, in order to "get genuine" and to "pass" the "validation" check.

Print driver for Windows 7


You may need to upgrade your product. I see PDF Professional 4 is Win7 compatible on the company's web site. The Windows Compatibility Center doesn't list the product.

Alternatively, you could install the older version in a computer with XP (either a dual-boot or virtual computer). If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run the XP mode (two programs to download and install from Microsoft). Otherwise you'll need a valid product key for XP. You may need to place files on external media to transfer them from the real computer to the virtual one and back.

I hope this helps.

Purchased computer model Elite 9070a have been well serviced with HP products this being 3rd HP computer we have purchased. However am very disalusioned with Vista program and wish to replace with windows...


You sound like you tried to install XP with Vista running - this will generate the message that you have received.

To install XP on your system, insert your XP disk into the computer and then restart it.

Select Boot From Disk during start up and this will lead you into the XP Installation.

Xp will not recognise Vista and will just overwrite it - deleting the current OS and formatting the C:\

Good luck.
