Okay I have software for my printer and scanner that's intended for XP. Would I be able to use those to download the software for those devices on my laptop with Vista or is it better for me to search the internet for the appropriate OS drivers?

I need to add those devices on my laptop in case my mom does send my old laptop away xD

Use the OS appropriate ones. If they don't work, use the XP ones. If they don't work, use them in compatibility mode.

Ah, I see. When I got the devices, it was pretty much XP out and Vista was on it's way. I'll just look for the appropriate downloads online then. I was kind of hoping just to upload the XP version and hope it takes xD

Thanks!

Yeah really you have to use the OS appropriate for the first time. And if it will not work's then should use XP.
