Re: Automatic driver search

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


All of these are good questions regarding codec's. However, I don't have any real knowledge about how this is done so I can't shed any informative light on the subject. I will attempt to pass along your comments, though.

Thanks for the feedback.
