Vista won't recognize my USB for camera or flash drive by abster45
Hi, I have used my Vista system to download pictures from my camera ( Fuji Finepix ) before, but now it is not working. When I plug the USB into my laptop, it makes a little beep like it normally would when it recognizes new hardware, but nothing comes up.

Pioneer DVD Writer Disappears After Reboot - Vista RC1 by AC - 2006
Hi, Just wondering whether anyone has experience issue with DVD writer disappearing from Vista RC1 after rebooting. I have a Pioneer 111D installed with a Liteon CD/DVD combo. When I restart my PC, either from a cold or warm reboot, Vista can see my Liteon drive but not by Pioneer DVD writer.

changing hardware after vista install by ace
I plan on purchasing vista soon. the problem is that after i install perhaps a couple of months I probably will upgrade most of the hardware in my computer, such as motherboard, video card, processor...I was wondering how would this affect the authentication of vista. Is it better to just wait and install vista on a new sata hdd rather than my old one and just wait until i upgrade?

DLS sound device issues... HELP!!! by Ace of Spades
Is the DLS device in my sound drivers actually a driver?? because basically my computer has no sound whatsoever, I've tried all the volume switches, tried all the ports and the DLS device is working (apparently). So do i need a separate sound card? or should I be able to hear sound through my comp anyway? If i don't need a Sound card, then what is wrong with my comp?

Scroll wheel is inconsistent in applications by ACI
On a new install of Vista Home Premium, we are seeing the mouse scroll wheel work inconsistantly in applications. In Outlook it scrolls the wrong direction, in some apps it doesn't work at all, in others it works as expected. These same apps worked fine when running under XP.
