    If you look at the top of the Drivers forum, you will see some pinned posts that could help.



    And, yes, there are driver problems in Vista -- both before and after SP1. USB drivers seem to be causing the most problems. Lots of complaints now from folks whose external hard drives no longer work properly after SP 1 updating. Appealing to the drive suppliers is a waste of time because they'll tell you that the drivers come with Vista -- which is why they don't supply any!



    As to SP 2, wouldn't hold your breath waiting. Would guess at least a year before it comes out, if then. Given the bad reception and experience with SP 1, wouldn't be surprised if MS abandoned the "SP" concept all together.

    I have a FULLY updated vista home premium 64. But i now can't install and new devices.



    All my old usb devices can be unplugged and replugged in and thety work fine. It's just devices that the pc has never seen before that it won't install!!

    Read the pinned posts at the top of this Forum and see if any of them help. There is no single "miracle cure" for driver problems in Vista.
