I just reinstalled windows on my pc and am missing drivers for certain things, and while searching for the driver for my sound card some site made me download Driver Detective. It looks really good, and I assume I will be able to use just that one programme to download and install all the drivers I need, instead of me searching for every one.
The bad thing issss you gotta pay for it which I don't wanna do cos I'm cheap

So like the title says, any freeware programmes like the Driver Detective?

Have you tried looking for a cracked version?

Yeess first thing I did lol but it doesn't look like there's one working, I've tried 3 different torrents.


EDIT:Actually never mind, I just read a review of it and it says that Driver Detective only detects what drivers are out of date etc.
Since it scans your pc for free I'll just look for the drivers that I need.

Does http://www.driverfiles.net/ actually host any files? And if so does anyone know how to download from it? I cannot find a download button anywhere >_>

No it doesn't, I was digging around for scanner drivers for a friend yesterday and it just seems to advertise that dumb program. Pain in the arse when it keeps coming top in search engines. Stick with the manufacturer's sites.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space

  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    Nor clothes 🤮 . Saves on time, soap, water and money having to wash them. :D
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @rqkaiju2, Physical media is a great source for archiving your data, none of that cloud storage shiz.
