Yes it will but you don't have to carry the drivers around with youand most of the time if your plugging into a different PC then your own its to charge. The other point I made is that the cable allows you to charge from any portable USB charger ie cigarette car charger etc as most only have supply to pin 1 & 4.

I have as well but on newer machines, my kids vista PC worked without the need of drivers but the older XP's didn't. Its all about how the PC operates the port.
