Although the modem was working very well on that computer with XP, on this new machine Vista keeps forgetting that the modem is installed. It seems to happen after the computer has come out of...

Scanner driver installed, but TWAIN panel says "XP Only" by Noozer

Running as administrator and in compatibility mode make no difference. The installer doesn't uncompress to the TEMP folder, or anywhere else that I can see, so I can't try and bypass the OS...

Yet another cannot write to CD/DVD by Raedwulf
I have an HP DVD740 as well as a Panasonic LF-D-103 DVD RAM drive, neither drive will allow me to write to media, they have no issues reading a CD or DVD Both of these drives worked in XP I seen other people suggest using Nero... why should I have to use something else when Vista itself should be able to handle the basic function?
