I can't use my HP digital camera with Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I own a hand me down HP Photosmart M415 digital camera. It came with a cd software installer that would work with XP platforms. What I want to know is can I download freeware or buy software that would enable the camera to work with Windows 7? I do not have HP Image Zone on my laptop. If I downloaded this program would the camera work with an updated driver or is it just too old? Thanks for reading.
