MS tried to get developers to use the Windows Portable Device driver as opposed to the Windows Image Acquisition driver for cameras and scanners. In Vista, this was forced. This is why some cameras no longer work with stock software when moving to Vista. It appears that Google recognized this and wrote their add-on to support as required. OneNote will record video off of my camera, but none of the Vista apps recognize it for still photos as you could in XP.
