Compatability for my Camera Software with Windows7

  Keeno316 17:44 17 Oct 2009

As those of you who read my earlier thread will know, I am purchasing a new PC at the end of the week once Windows 7 is released.

I have a Fujifilm Digital Camera and a Panasinic Digital Video Camera. Camera five years old and video camera three years old.

Should I be concerned that the Software for each Camera will work on my new Windows 7?

P.S. Also my iPod Software.

xp mode should help or install your old xp & camera software into a virtual machine. You can run this in a window.
This will get you over any driver/software issues.

...about iPod software. It works perfectly on Windows 7.

It is said that Windows 7 will be run Win 98 software in compatability mode

if you want to use old software on your computer, Microsoft has built in a “compatibility tool” that allows you to run applications that were built for operating systems as old as Windows 95.
