Compatibility issue between Sony DSC-P50 and Windows 95
Any suggestions to fix an apparent compatibility issue between the software with the Sony DSC-P50 camera and a Windows 95 operating system running on a desktop would be greatly appreciated.

DSC-P50 software and Windows 95 issue
Issue seems to be installing the Sony USB driver (SPVD-004) that came with the camera onto a Windows 95 operating system. Attempted to install with the install wizard, but won't complete. I had heard from one source that I need at least Windows 98, clean install (not an upgrade) for the computer, which is a desktop, to communicate with the camera. Are there other solutions?

win95b was first to support USB, BIOS in many motherboards also has "enable" for USB, this should be enabled prior to installing OS thats Supports USB. ME is a stabble platform now, but the futher you get away from 95 the more problems with any DOS (RIP) based programs. ME does a better job in having drivers for hardware than the 98's.
