Ever buy computer hardware on the used market? If so, you’re probably familiar with that sinking feeling you get when you plug it in and your computer fails to recognize it.
DriversPlanet is a website that hosts thousands of device drivers for Windows in a well-organized and searchable database. Printers, scanners, soundcards, storage, joysticks — they’re all here for multiple versions of Windows, including Vista.
DriversPlanet offers direct driver downloads whenever it can. In other cases, the site provides a link to the manufacturer’s download page. Granted, you could probably find most of these drivers by running a few quick Google searches, but good luck finding drivers for discontinued products or devices made by companies no longer in business.
