How do you install WinXP drivers into Win7

Does Windows 7 have a Compatibility Mode like Vista did. Seem to be missing the whole XP "sound, video and game controllers" drivers in the Device Manager in Windows 7 Home Premium. Backed them up using Driver Genius but don't know how to install them? Thanks.
