Windows XP x64 incompatability issues!

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?Y2hpc21vcw==?=, Sep 21, 2005.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  8. 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?

  11. Is that their drag and drop thing? Then no, not yet. Though a new version is
    coming, so maybe there.
