XP driver for Colorado T3000?

XP driver for Colorado T3000?

(OP)
My sister is finally dumping her Windows 95 computer for a shiny new XP Home model.  She has dutifully and religiously done system back ups, using a Colorado T3000.  I checked on the HP site and don't see a driver for XP.  Does anyone know if such a driver exists?  Any help/clues would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks. -- Ham

RE: XP driver for Colorado T3000?

I'm not sure where the driver for the T3000 actually comes from. It seems to be part of the software package quite often and whether that program is compatible with the operating system. At the risk of being blacklisted by MS, like the disappearance of Windows magazine, maybe she should consider Linux rather than to join everyone else paying that pseudo-god. Many European countries have put into place legislation that requires a minimum percentage of their government equipment be running on something other than MS. It is not political except from perhaps an economic point. People are getting tired of being required to upgrade everything every couple of years. That is new OS system means new hardware and new software. If you look around, you will see quite a few people are using the T3000 on linux.
That being said, an alternative might be to network the two computers together and enable file sharing. Hooking them together via an internal network seems to afford an extra degree of security as well. Wired being the preferred method since to use the lastest security of wireless XP would be required on both machines.
