Which make/model of camera?

You can try it.

But XP has a compatability mode too, so you can run the software as though it is windows 98.

However this does not always work, so check for some XP drivers on the manufacturers site or: click here

And you could search google for them: click here

Good luck!

click here Think this is the one. Can't find any specifications though. You could try win. compatibility mode to see if it will be recognised. j.

It says that a DB9 connector is included and you may need a DB25 connector. Could this be the reason?
