Having trouble with drivers...

Hm - this refuses to let me load drivers for this device. It tells me that there is already a "newer driver" loaded and it can only load the drivers if there is no service pack loaded onto my system. Well, it also can't FIND a driver for this when I search for it it can't load the driver because a better one exists, but it also can't find a better one to use. I've tried many things - thought maybe it had to do with the 1394-SP2 issue, so i tried about a hundred various solutions that i found all over the net to no avail. And no matter what I do, it won't recognize drivers for this device. Oddly enough, the USB seems to be working fine, no issue at all. Its just the firewire thats malfunctioning, and in the device manager, it has the little yellow exclamation point. Please help! Thanks.

Re: having trouble with drivers...

Delete the yelow exclamation listing from device manager. restart the computer. Comnnect your device from serial port. Let the computer to detect it. If add new hardware wizard starts, you just click next and go to the (for xp)"I will find the driver manually" go to browse button go the driver location (cd or folder where it is located). Select it and click next and finish the wizard. Now see if the hardware is working. if not Then ensure that the hardware is properly connected to the serial port. Again delete the yellow exclaimed listing for the device from device manager. Ensure that the driver you want to install is exactly the driver of specified device. Some times it happens that the advance versions of operating systems has pre loaded updated drivers for common devices so the old drivers not work. you also ensure that the driver you want to install is made for the operating system you use. Restart the computer an ensure that the driver is ok.Install it directly from the cd by setup.exe file if you have and see it is working.

No Internet

According to the make & model of ur motherboard, do you have the necessary drivers for it. If u are running WinXP then it can be updated from the MB manufacturers website & if its Vista, then check whether all your hardware components are vista compatible. If any hardware is listed in the device manager window with an error yellow colored triangle try reinstalling the driver from the net, but if it still remains the same satus then that hardware is not vista compatible and vista does not allow external drivers to be loaded, so u might have to change that hardware or bear the loss of that component if not essential to ur normal work................sodeep

Usb to serial adapter question

Try installing the Wacom USB drivers on the Mac. As I understand it, this adapter is designed to interact with devices that have their own serial drivers installed--such as a PDA, cell phone, camera, etc.--not necessarily with an input device, such as a drawing tablet, game controller, or pointing device. YMMV.

Quantum Maxtor Serial Adapter

Though I suspected that I already knew the answer to your question about a source for drivers for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter, I wanted to research this in order to be able to provide PROOF that my answer is correct. As a result, I've now spent more than two hours researching this issue for you... As it turns out, the drivers you have requested are actually EMBEDDED within Windows itself, and have been ever since the release of Windows 98 Second Edition. They are listed within Windows as "OHCI 1394" drivers, which is another designation for FireWire / IEEE1394 device drivers. According to the Seagate / Maxtor Knowledge Base, there are NO downloadable drivers for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter, and none have ever existed. The software originally provided on the CD in the retail package for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter did NOT include drivers, which I'll explain in more detail later... As a general rule, when installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter into a system for the first time, you insert the PCMCIA card into the Type II slot while Windows is loaded, NOT while the system is shut down; after inserting the card into an empty Type II CardBus slot, you should then hear a tone indicating that Windows has detected a device in the slot. The Add New Hardware Wizard should then load, and you might be prompted to insert your Windows CD into your optical drive, though this should NOT be necessary if you've previously installed any other FireWire devices on the same system. You can download the Installation Guide (in .PDF file format) for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter from either of the following links: tallation_guides/1394_cardbus_installation_guide.pdf 041641.pdf Simply right-click one of those links, and choose the "Save As..." option to download and save the Installation Guide to your Desktop, or to another folder where you can find it easily... The following links should help you to learn more; the first link explains the reason why drivers are NOT available for download for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: The next link describes a known problem (and the solution) when the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter is installed on some IBM Thinkpad laptops: The next link describes the hardware and software requirements for installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: As I've previously mentioned, the original software (on the CD-ROM) provided with the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter were the "MaxTools" utilities (which I have NOT been able to locate for download); they were NOT actual hardware drivers for a Windows OS... Well, I hope this solves the mystery of the "missing" FireWire drivers; though I don't recall ever needing to load third-party drivers for ANY FireWire devices I've installed in a Windows system, I wanted to be able to PROVE to you (and to anyone else who reads this in the future) that the drivers are already embedded within Windows, and that they are NOT available for download. As long as you use a supported version of Windows (all versions beginning with the release of Windows 98 Second Edition), you already have the drivers available, though Windows will probably need to extract them from the Windows CD, if they haven't been loaded onto the system previously. Good luck with this; let us know if you have any problems installing your FireWire card. I don't think that is likely to happen, as long as you follow the steps in the Installation Guide. You might want to create printouts of those Seagate Knowledge Base pages (or copy them to your hard drive, or at the least, bookmark the individual links) for future reference.
