Windows Vista Drivers

Drivers for Windows Vista have been a bit of a problem since the Beta version was released last year. A friend of mine couldn’t wait to try it out, but he just couldn’t fix the problem he had with finding a compatible sound driver.

Things are a bit better now, but hardware manufacturers are still taking their time updating their drivers so that your kit will play nice with Vista.

Of course, finding the right driver is the difficult bit. Ed Bott has set up a Vista Master Driver List so if you can’t find it there then it’s probably not been released yet. Thanks to Ed for a great resource and thanks to Corrine of Security Garden for the tip… she’s added this list to Vista Bookmarks which is another site you should check out regularly.
