Your File Format error could be because you are using Letters on Track 2.
NO letters on track 2. Also try removing any spaces, ? # :.

Here is an example of a two track Card. Spaces are seen as__.

I need software for msr206 for windows7. I also need the drivers

Here are the drivers. There is also a user guide in PDF on that page which can guide you through setup. I see that the driver is not meant for windows 7 so it will have to be installed in a compatibility mode for an operating system it runs on(95, 98, 2K, NT 4.0). To install in compatibility mode......
1. Place the driver installation file on the Desktop.
2. Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select the appropriate options in from the list in the following image.
3. Click Apply/OK.

4. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.
