I'm having a spot of bother installing my printer, scanner and USB card reader on my new (XP)machine. I've got the driver disks but all I'm getting is something about XP incompatibility blah..when I try to use the hardware wizard and click "have disk" I get something like "drivers not found at selected location" or words to that effect. Right enough, the disks are pre XP (98,2000,ME) but is there no way to use the gizmos with my new machine ?
The printer and scanner you will need XP drivers for, although XP has a lot of printer drivers already installed. Go to the manufacturer's web site for updated drivers for the printer and scanner. XP should recognise the card reader, straight away (it did mine) and load it's own drivers for it.
Sometimes, if you can't find XP drivers, Win 2000 drivers will work.
thanks all, my eyes have also "gone funny" and the ogre lying two feet to left of where i'm typing, (but can't (i hope) see what i'm typing) has called an end to my session. As the punishment for non-compliance with this rule is the withdrawal of Saturday morning fry-up, I must withdraw from the field of enlightenment, cheers folks, Dag.
