If software manufacturers have been using ASC11 since the 60's to make their products recognize and have Backward Compatibility to make newer software work with older software; is there really any reason Microsoft couldn't do this with drivers in Vista & Win7? Perhaps a Guru could or would explain why or why not.
technology changes every day, no one can & wish to hold very old thing with current requirement.. in 80's and 90's floppy is an most important storage medium in IT industry..
