Automatic driver search
In reply to Rick Turner [MS], Apr 26, 2001

The automatic search for drivers, by Windows is slick, I only hope it works better than the automatic search for video codecs that is in Windows now. I always wonder why, when I click on an avi, and Windows jumps onto the web to get the codec, it fails to find it. Is it too hard for Microsoft to collect all the codecs? Is there legal issues with some codecs that negate Microsoft holding them? Are the codec writer's websites down at the time so the codec isn't available?

Does Microsoft plan to provide drivers for all digicams out there ?
When I conencted my Canon G1, it searched the net for drivers and
came up with a blank. What are the plans wrt. driver support for
digital cameras? An explorer like interface to browse the G1 would
be excellent.

Our goal is to have drivers for all digicams -- either available on
the Windows XP CD or available from the manufacturer on their
website. At this point, I can't comment on support for the G1
specifically. Sorry.
