    Will a device that states that it is supported by Xp,but says nothing about
    vista(created before vista)will it be able to work on a vista based computer?

    Some will, some won't. Check the device mfg's website to properly determine
    Vista support.

  3. In general you can't count on it working. There is a chance if you are
    talking about Vista x86. There is zero chance if you are talking about
    Vista x64.

    The simple answer is "maybe". You can try accessing the
    manufacturer's web site and see if they have updated drivers
    for it to run in Vista. If no luck there, you can try
    installing it anyway and see if the supplied drivers will
    run under Vista.

    By the way, it would help if you would identify the device.
