Vista...ugh...i'm sad :(


So I recently upgraded my laptop to Vista...I really like the new features...but...now all my gadgets don't work! I try connecting my Ipaq Pocket PC to my laptop...and that doesn't work. I can't install it's drivers and synching software. Windows Vista is supposed to have a Windows Mobile Device Center program to replace ActiveSync but it won't recognize my mobile devices! I also can't connect my phone to my laptop because it won't recognize that either. My webcam also doesn't work! I managed to download and install it's drivers...but the audio drivers won't work with vista. UGH!!! I'm so frustrated with it. I am thinking of downgrading to XP but I'd have to lose all my data and start from scratch by reformating then reinstalling XP. I have a whole lot of files on my laptop that would take forever to burn and backup...plus I have my mmorpgs that I'd have to reinstall and repatch...which would take FOREVER!!!!
Sigh...::kicks laptop:: I sooooo can't wait till I get my new laptop...I'm getting a mac (>.<)

That's why I'm worried about upgrading to VISTA. I'm going to give it six months until they sort everything else out.

As for your webcam... Perhaps you should get your own private papparazzi, like me?

tried going to the products websites to get the updated drivers?

once you get everything working, vista kicks ass.

unfortunately, I went tothe product websites and tried getting updated drivers...but they weren't compatible with vista. I have a Logitech Quickcam Orbit...the drivers are not compatible with Vista. I tried using the drivers for the Quickcam Orbit MP, and it kind of works...the video/picture as well as the motion control/tracking...but the audio/mic doesn't work. I don't use the mic much...but I still don't like things not functioning the way they should be (>.<)
