I recently installed x64 because that was the reason I built a 64bit system
in the first place. To have the latest fastest system that I could get. Only
now, do I learn that there are a number of 32bit apps and drivers that are
incompatable with the x64 OS. Now if Microsoft is so hot on promoting this
new OS, why cant I find the updated drivers from manufacturers such as HP
for my scanner or digital camera or Pico for my DVR card. Even Nero is having
difficulty running on this system and it seems to me that my machine was
doing better running XP 32bit.

Its not really Microsoft's fault, its the manufacturers of those devices and
applications who did not take time invest in development to support their
products on the x64 platform. http://www.planetamd64.com is a good place to
start for drivers.

In addition, it is upon the OP to do the research necessary before jumping
in to something new.
It is no secret that OEMS are slow to adapt to Windows XP Professional x64
Edition (Logitech being an exception...thank you Logitech!). The OP should
have known there would be problems.

As the prevouse poster said, it is not MS fault if the hardware
manufactures does not offer 64 bit drivers, MS cannot possible track
every single pringer, sound/video card, chipset driver manufactured. Not
to mention the millions of applications out thier.

It is simular to the situation with linux, people say "I can't use my
scanner/printer/modem/capture card/ect.. with linux so linux is crap" it
is not that linux can't use those devices, it is the fact the the
manufactures of those devices do not provice linux software or drivers.

Give linux a try, all the applications are 64 bit however most scanners
work, however you may have trouble with your camera and pico.

Its not that I blame Microsoft for the incompatabilities, although when I
installed sp2 on my 32b xp, my dvd burner suddenly quit working due to issues
with sp2. But that is another issue. My problem is that 99% of the apps and
drivers out there for my devices have been out there for quite some time and
seem to work ok until MS comes along and changes the rules of the game. I
mean really, there own website "genuine microsoft" detection utility could
not validate the x64 os that I obtained from there website. And thank you for
your suggestion about linux. I have thought about going that way on more than
one occasion. oh and I will go back to planetamd64 to see if there are any
new developements in hair restoration for the few of us who have RIPPED each
and every hair out of our heads in an attempt to ease the pain and turmoil
associated with MS and the whole windows family. Thank you all and good night.

Have they built 64-bit drivers for INCD?
