64-bit machines cannot handle legacy code (e.g. 8-bit strings) that work fine on 32-bit and lower machines.
Just my guess. It is not W7's fault. It is recognizing the device. It is a software/driver compatibility problem at the chipset level.
No fix for it but to rewrite the code and strip out the legacy stuff. Have you double checked and searched yourself for a new driver?
Try [camera name] drivers in Google directly.
I second what was said above. As far as the difference in the code. Because I bought a Canon A630 in 2006(back when 6/8MP was the best on the market). It worked fine on my XP Pro system. At the time, my computer was:
Now, My new computer is:
It works fine on my Win7 system.
Which means that, the coding allowed for upgrading from a 32-bit OS, to a 64-bit OS.
Since you have upgraded the drivers', ask the company's tech support people.
