Sure,

You need Administrator privileges, which I can guess you have, then follow this walk through:

Right Click My Computer
Select Manage
Select Disk Management

See if some other drive, like a memory card or CD or DVD drive is using G. If it is right click that drive and select (words to this effect) change drive letters and from the drop down list change it to Z for the moment.

Right click the drive partition you want to change.
A dialoge box comes up with a drop down list of letters available to you. Change your drive from G to F. If F is not displayed and you have reassigned F to Z you may have to reboot and repeat the above until you can assign a new letter and F should be available now.

Often times PCs today and especially Laptops have built in memory card readers. I always start by assigning the first memory card slot in the list to M for memory card and then assign subsequent letters (there are usually only three) as N and O, and so on.

For your CD/DVD drives I assign a new letters a few letters down from the last Hard Drive partition.

If you need further explanation or instructions comment back to me and I'll work with you until you get this resolved.

Regards,
Worldvet

No current driver for Smartdisk 120 GB HD, needed for Vista Ultimate 64bit


Any external drive uses a USB connection, and Windows Vista will recognize this "plug-and-play" device, using the built-in device-drivers.

Which Windows Vista Edition are you?


If you are upgrading XP to Vista, make sure you backup and have the program "Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor"

Download Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=42B5AC83-C24F-4863-A389-3FFC194924F8&displaylang=en

Be Sure to Backup with a removable media such as CD's, Floppy Disks or USB Flash Drives, External Hard Drivers.

Windows Vista Editions:

Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

These also include 64-bit.

Lastly, if you have XP and if it's Vista Capable, you don't need to use the upgrade advisor, you are allowed to use any, but you must download the drivers after upgrade.

I did a little research on your situation, and the only operating systems that support your camera's drivers are Windows XP, Mac, and windows 2000. I mean, you can try to see if it will work, but im just transmitting infromation.
