    I have a Mass Storage Controller that Vista won't install. It's manufactured
    by Ultra. Any ideas?

    hummvee69,

    If you have an Ultra IDE controller board in your computer, you need to
    install the drivers for that board. Check to see whether you can find some
    Vista compatible driver support at the manufacturer's website.

    I have an XP driver for this on a disc, but "add hardware" doesn't detect my
    card. There are also no "Mass Storage" devices or "IDE Controllers" that
    match my card. "Have disc" doesn't work either. I know the card is working
    because it detects the hard drives during start-up. No drivers from the
    manufacturer.

    hummvee69,

    The card and driver must be Vista compatible. You may be able to figure out
    a way to install and to run the XP drivers in compatibility mode, but I have
    no idea whether that would work in your case. You can try it to see what
    happens. If all else fails, your only option is to purchase and install a
    Vista compatible card with driver. You can use the Windows Help and Support
    feature under Start to learn about using compatibility mode. Just search on
    Compatibility Mode.
