    Run it in compatibilty mode.


    • Right click the setup.exe file for the driver and chose properties.

    • Select the Compatibility tab

    • Check the box that says Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows XP (SP2) from the drop down menu.

    • If you do not have admin rights on the system, then make sure you do not check Run this program as an Administrator at the bottom of the window.
    Hope that helps.

Install my webcam


Use the CD/DVD disk that came with your web cam.

Insert the disk and install the driver for your Windows version that you are using. XP, Vista or 7
Once the driver is installed restart your computer and then insert the web cam into the USB port on your computer/laptop. It's the rectangular silver socket

All the best!

Hard disk Recognition problem


U are actually facing the same problem as "jackwilkinso". As my previous post: Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

Laptop Won't Recognize External HD


You can try opening the device manager in Window XP and uninstall the external hard disk (make sure you show unplugged devices).
Then replug the drive again, and it should reinstall the drivers.

WD external hard disk appears on disk manager but not on my computer nor on disk management


We had a simmilar problem, the disk was initialised with vista. It does not read on any other computor on our network. I recently aquired a second vista computor and tried it out on that. Sure enough it works. Thus the problem is that if it was initialised on vista, only vista systems will read it and not xp or 2000. hopes this helps

Sandisk flash drive


Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.

Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium


Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.
