to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.
After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.
I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps
Check if you have to press the fn (function) key on your laptop before pressing Print Screen, you can tell if they are both the same blue color.
When you press ALT+Print Screen, you only capture the active window, when you
click print screen you capture the entire screen. Then you will have to
press CTRL+V on your keyboard to paste into paint. If you have windows Vista, you can capture screen shots much more easily using the Snipping Tool included with Vista.
Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
Type a file name for the image.
Select a file type.
Click the Save button.
Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
See related resources below for more screen shot tips
and listings of screen capture software that offers many more options
for capturing screens and portions of screens on Windows and Macintosh
The Windows "clipboard" is a term used to
describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed
when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the
program you're working in. If you copy something else, the old item is
replaced with the new. You can't manipulate the clipboard directly; it's
only used for copy and paste operations.
Ok try formatting the usb drive under XP, put a small file on it, say a pic or something, then take it to win 7 & see if win 7 is OK with it, if OK, well then copy files and take back to XP.. ya should be able to "see" ya files now.
1- Check in your windows Vista if the file and print sharing is enable in the "network and sharing center" 2- Try disabling your firewall in your windows Vista to troubleshoot. If your firewall is blocking the connection you might have tp add a rule to allow access from your windows 7 to your windows vista

good luck hope I helped, get back to me if you need more help.
you shouldnt need a device driver for your pda to work along side with Vista, as Vista has it's own Windows mobile device centre which should run as soon as you connect your pda to a usb port.
If it doesnt run, then open up windows mobile device centre in programmes and check the mobile device settings as to whether usb is set to connect to the centre.
