Re: Windows Xp devices and Windows Vista Devices
Some will, some won't. Check the device mfg's website to properly determine
Vista support.

Re: Windows Xp devices and Windows Vista Devices
In general you can't count on it working. There is a chance if you are
talking about Vista x86. There is zero chance if you are talking about
Vista x64.

Re: Windows Xp devices and Windows Vista Devices
The simple answer is "maybe". You can try accessing the
manufacturer's web site and see if they have updated drivers
for it to run in Vista. If no luck there, you can try
installing it anyway and see if the supplied drivers will
run under Vista.

By the way, it would help if you would identify the device.
