If the drive is formatted correctly the device should be functional without the need for additional drivers. make sure the device is recognized under the hardware manager. if not the device might need to be initalized and formatted.

There is no downloadable driver for this printer. You just need to update the Windows 7 list on your computer with the latest update. Here are the instructions from hp:

I am unable to listen sound in windows 7 , and it is not accepting sound drivers of mother board cd, but the same is accepted in xp sp-3


The driver on the CD may be too old (or an unsigned driver which can't be loaded in the 64-bit OS) to be compatible with Win 7. Try downloading the latest driver from the Intel site for the on-board sound:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+945+Express+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D945GCCR
Select your Win7 version. I saw 3 different updates of the Realtek Sound drivers under Win7 32 bit.

Alternatively, set Windows 7 to look for hardware driver updates and install them (they might end up in the Windows Update section until you go there and install the update). I did this in Win7 by going to the Device Manager (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager). Right click on the audio device and choose Update driver (or Properties and the Driver tab). If the Device Manager shows a triangle with an exclamation point, this is an easy solution most of the time.

I hope this helps.

My laptop which has windows 7 on it does not recognize mmy dongle


there is an update for windows 7 and dongles at the husqvarna viking website.

From Husqvarna Viking website -

When installing the 4D Embroidery System onto Windows 7 computers, the dongle drivers may not initially work correctly, as the 4D Embroidery System installs a set of dongle drivers which were created before Windows 7.
Download and install the latest dongle drivers prior to installing the 4D Embroidery System. Failure to do this, may result in the "Dongle driver not found (E0009)" when you try to open the 4D modules.
Please follow the steps below to install the latest dongle drivers BEFORE installing the 4D Embroidery System
  1. Download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.
  2. Insert your 4D Dongle.
  3. Install your 4D Embroidery System software (and all updates).
  4. Open your 4D Embroidery System software to confirm that your dongle is working correctly.
If you installed the 4D Embroidery System software before installing the latest dongle drivers and if you experience problems such as the error message "Unable to start hasplms service..."; download and install the latest Dongle Drivers.

link to latest Dongle Drivers - http://vsmsoftware.net/downloads/HASP/HASPUsersetup.exe

Husqvarna Viking - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

If you are still unable to get it to work, visit your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Most stores have staff who are eager to help but you might want to call for an appointment

Good luck..
