Tell me about the compatibility of Windows Me with Windows 98SE, Windows 98 and Windows 95.

    Can I use my peripherals and applications I have been using
    with my previous Windows as they are?

    I cannot use on Windows Me my peripherals and applications
    that have been working normally on the previous Windows.

    Windows Me does not always have the full compatibility
    with the previous Windows.

    Windows Me is not always compatible fully with Windows
    98SE, Windows 98 and windows 95. When you want to use
    your peripherals and applications for the previous version of
    Windows, be sure to check with their manufacturers whether
    or not the products support Windows Me.

    (Note)

    - The use of peripherals and software that do not support
    Windows Me may cause such troubles as the damage of the
    system and the loss of your data in the worst case.

    - Furthermore, even when peripherals and applications
    support Windows Me, they do not support sometimes the
    power management system of Windows Me. If you use those
    peripherals and applications, some limitation may take
    place in the state of standby, pause, shutting down and
    restart. When you check the supporting information, make
    sure to check the details of such information.
