    You just need to download XP drivers for any devices that XP did not load them. Easiest place is the manufacturers website.

    There is no program to "convert drivers" from 98 to XP
    Drivers are written from scratch for the operating system. It would be nice to "convert" them but it just doesn't work like that.

    If you choose not to detail exactly what hardware you want drivers for, we really can't help.

    I need a driver for a parallel scanner. Model is AGFA SnapScan310p.
    If this helps you?
    Too bad, that it hasn't any driver convertation tools out there.

    Where can I find XP drivers for my SnapScan 310?
    There are 2 SnapScan 310 types: 310 S (SCSI) and 310p (parallel port)

    The 310p is one of the Agfa scanners that doesn't work under XP. There are however beta drivers for Windows 2000 available. For this scanner, there will never be XP drivers in the future since as of September 2001 Agfa is no longer in the desktop scanner and digital camera business. If you are running Windows XP and want to use your SnapScan 310p, you can keep Windows 98 or 2000 on a different partition and install the drivers on that partition.
