HP is not making this commonly known, but you can use the same drivers for Windows XP that were used in Windows 2000.
I learned this in a forum discussion on HP's own website. I have listed the URL at the bottom of this message. Once you're on their site, read down the page to a posting by Joe Marx (you'll see a red star by his name indicating some sort of computer expertise).
Basically, you need to uninstall your camera, then reinstall it telling the computer to look for the driver on your CD that came with the camera. It will give you a warning that the driver may not be compatible with XP, but just ignore this and tell it to use that driver anyway. Make sure that you have also installed "Arcsoft Photo Impressions 2000" that came on the CD with your camera. Then it should work. Here's the URL....the useful postings are closer to the bottom of the page:,,0xf7d09200caded5118ff40090279cd0f9,00.html

I hope this helps!
