Scanner Problem by Mickey Mouse
My scanner (CanoScan FB 630U) won't run/install on Vista Premium, incompatible drivers. Although I might get it to work using Vuescan, I'd like to know whether you can get Vista to run in XP mode for incompatible software. My scanning is very infrequent so can't really justify the price for Vuescan. Mickey

question about drive letters by Robert[_19_]
Once upon a time the letters A and B were reserved for designating floppy disk drives. Now that those drives are obsolete, why has the standard not been changed so that hard-drives or DVD drives can be labelled A or B. Are those two letters doomed never to be used again? Or are the powers-that-be in the computer industry saving them for some future use?

Windows Logo Key gets sticked by Xim
Hello all, Since I got my PC upgraded from Windows 2000 to Vista Enterprise, I have had a problem with the Windows Logo key occasionally become a "sticky key". I can't put a finger on any sequence that causes the problem, but I finally found out that I can get the normal keys back by pressing one time at the logo key. In the set-up I have disabled "sticky keys", so this should not be the...

Hello All, I am having a weird problem and can't seem to find any info about it on the web. Whenever I put a blank disc in my dvd rw drive it adds a recycled and autorun.inf file to the disk.

I've tried uninstalling Roxio and I...

Old usb devices work fine,new usb devices would not install by Christopher Hume
Like the subject title, says old usb devices are working fine, but new ones will not install under Vista. Vista would suggest the update (Windows6.0-KB940199-x86) but when trying it, I'd get the message that it does not apply to my machine. I've tried copying the pnf and inf files, tried moving the usbstore, tried deleting the INFcache.1, all to no avail (as recommended by many web site). I...

Graphics Tablet on 2 Screens Stops Working by Cam_M
I am having a problem with my graphics tablet. It works just fine on both screens after a reboot, however after a little while (I am not sure what exactly is causing it to do this) it just suddenly reverts to my main monitor only, and nothing I do seems to make it work again aside from rebooting. Also at the same time that it stops working on both monitors, I also no longer get the "Ripple"...

Toshiba M305D-S4830 DVD drive disappears by Filthgrinder
I just bought the Toshiba M305D-S4830 which has Vista Home Premium 64bit installed. The drive keeps disappearing. When it is working and I open up Device Manager, it suddenly refreshes and the drive is gone. No error message, the drive is just gone. It cannot be ejected, but the light on it is flashing all the time. A reboot brings the device back, but only for a random amount of time.

2 Gig SD card issue resolved? by Mark C
Greetings. I'm using Vista Ultimate 64 bit, SP1, and my multi SD card reader can't read 2 gig cards. It can read other cards with less than 2 gig. With the 2 gig card it just sits and tries to read it, doing nothing at all, no offer to format or even open a window to view. I've seen many others that have this issue. Has this been fixed to anyone's knowledge? Thanks in advance. -Mark
