    Vista x64 does not allow you to install non-signed drivers. So unless those manufacturers want to spend $$$$$ signing them, it wont work.

    You can remove this check for all of Vista, but every M$ update it will overwrite the hack, and consequentally your drivers will not work anymore.

        You can always switch to a better operating system...

        But yes, you are stuck if you stick with Vista until Microsoft decides to allow non-signed drivers. Even then, you need someone to make 64bit drivers since Vista x64 cannot use 32bit drivers under emulation as XP could if you forced it.

        If you like Vista, use the 32bit version. It will be easier

          dont get me wrong, i like vista better than xp. i can even say that i like 64 better then 32 (only for the difference in speed). I know xp is not a ram hog, but when you compare 8 gig of ram to 2 gigs it makes a difference. i really thinking about starting over. this time, just do simple. ive been looking around im thinking about the Lilliput in dash pc with an ex hdd. i know its nothing i built, but at lease i know it will work.

            If you honestly think you are getting a boost of speed with a 64 bit OS running 32bit applications, you are wrong. 32bit applications on a 64bit OS are slower than a 32bit native.

            I know of no programs that are in use on a CarPC that are optimized for 64bit, so it is wasted money there.

            Also 8Gb in the car is wasted. How much RAM do you really need to play a song?!

            I think you are going from one extreme to another. Just take out some RAM, format to a better OS, and be done with it, no more money spent.

              The carputer is just a bonus. The main thing I use this laptop for is pinnacle Studio Ultimate version 12 and Photoshop cs3. This pc came with vista home pre. but the hardware could be max at 8 gigs vista 32 will only see up to 4 gigs of ram. Adding more ram will increase your experience on any windows os. Remember running xp on 256 ram and then installing 2 gigs. Not only is 64 faster (Granit that programs be optimize for 64) it is more secure. I can remember running winamp on a pc with 64 mb of ram. If this was the only reason, then yes it would have been a waste of money. But I do appreciate the post but just know that the carputer is only a secondary function for my laptop. My laptop is my desktop away from my desktop. But anyway I’m getting off the point. What do you think of this Lilliput single din pc?

                I think that PC is crap... But up to you.

                And RAM only makes things faster when it can be used instead of a pagefile. Also it will take longer to hibernate since it has to write all 8Gb to the HD.

                I would suggest a dual boot for you. Install XP 32bit as well. For work boot Vista, for Car, boot XP.

                And if you are using those programs which I use as well (though mostly CS3 and also AutoCAD and such), XP will be faster no doubt including your video rendering. Time is money, so longer waiting to render takes more money....

                Again 64 is not faster unless you get a 64bit program which I have yet to see any for the car. It may be for high end programs that compile for it, but not for any you will need for CarPC function, so your second install does not need to be 64... And where did you hear this 'more secure' thing? That is not true at all. 64 just means it can do 64 parallel pipes instead of 32... Nothing to do with software security. If you mean nothing runs on 64 hence more secure, that is the apple argument there!

                If you want a seperate solution, I would look into that new unit the mp3car store has with the dual core, double din PC (that replaced the G4 from a while ago). It is slick.

                    I dont bash vista without reason. For the reasons you said, vista = bad choice.

                    I have a laptop with Vista... I have a HTPC with Vista. All others including car are XP though. And 1 old AT with a dos shell.

                            Why not just get a certified serial to usb adaptor?

                            I'm running vista 64 on my quad core phenom build and it smokes the 32 bit OS's running 32 or 64 bit software.

                              Dynex has discontinued the one i have even if you by the newly designed one, u still run into the same problem.

                              even belkin site has stated that "There is currently no driver for Vista 64-bits."

                              what are you running?
