Well,lets hope that Plustek has a driver for you!
As to hardware "backward compatable",as you are aware,Microsoft does not
write hardware drivers,there were thousands of beta testers who filed
thousands of "bugs" ,a large number of those bugs were hardware related,ie.
My suggestion for anyone considering the upgrade to Vista,is to check what
your PC has in the way of sound,dvd burners,printers,etc,then go to the
manufacturers web site and see if drivers are available for Vista before you
