Question about Microsoft Fingerprint Reader

Microsoft Fingerprint Reader

I am having difficulty using the Microsoft Fingerprint Reader. Can anyone help? Using XP Media Center edition, when I attempt to use the new reader (Model 1033) with the furnished CD installation disk (MPPM ver 1.0) it will register the fingerprints. When I go to a logon page at a website, the reader appears to recognize the fingerprint (the small icon image appears briefly on the screen), but the logon dialog window never appears. If I use the later DPPM (ver. 2.0) downloaded from Microsoft, it will also register the fingerprints satisfactorily. However, I always get an error message when I try to set it up to logon to any websites. The message reads: "This page is not a logon screen. (Well, it certainly is!!) To create a fingerprint logon, you must first use your Web browser to display the logon page for a Web site." I attempted contacting Microsoft, and their only reply is that the Media Center edition is pre-installed by the manufacturer (Toshiba) and may be modified by Toshiba in installation, that I must contact Toshiba. Since the laptop is beyond warranty, I doubt that Toshiba will provide any assistance. (In fact, they would probably just pass the buck back to Microsoft, leaving me caught in the middle). Anyone can help me figure this out?? Thanks.

    the software is too dumb to understand Chuck it away! It seems unless the bloody screen says "log on" it can't cope!

We have windows xp media center 2005 purchased in 2006-7 and I wasn't paying attention to our Help and Solution page until one day I saw that it said the Professional not the Media Center how can I change...


Hi There,

Windows Media Center Edition is exactly that; an "Edition" of XP Pro. If you go to My Computer and then click on System Properties, you will likely be comforted to see that you indeed have Windows Media Center Edition 2005.

Microsoft fingerprint reader and windows 7


Users installing windows 7 on their pcs may have experienced a problem: it seems microsoft fingerprint reader is not compatible with windows 7 so and has been discontinued by microsoft. That means, no driver update. You can go on using your fingerprint reader simply clicking the link below and following the instructions. I used that trick several times and it always worked. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html">http://www.blogfeld.com/2009/10/microsoft-fingerprint-reader-windows-7.html</a>

I'm having difficulty installing itunes over xp media center. it seems that both xp and itunes want to grap the cd drive. Any way out of this? Also I heard that xp media centre is cp pro with some add...


I am not quite sure what you mean by saying that the programs want to grab the cd drive. Neither program should be using the cd/dvd drive unless you are using it, neither program has sole use of it. Could you clarify if you are getting an error during the installation?

No you can't install XP Pro and use the same product key that you have with Media Center. You need to purchase XP Pro if you want to install it and use the product key that comes in the packaging.

Hi mikie

This fingerprint reader will support vista as well. Just connect the fingerprint reader to your vista computer and install the driver from the driver cd that you recieve with this reader.

Now you are ready to use your athena100 fingerprint reader

No unfortunately XP home and XP media edition are different but not completely. The only difference is the entertainment factor like TV control and live recording and pausing , viewing photos etc and media center is considered to be a bit more secure than XP home but i find this just a wrong perception of people as i also have XP home and also had media center, makes no difference at all regarding security but yes if u want much more features or facilities as far as entertainment is considered media center edition is far more good than XP home.......
IF U INSTALL XP HOME THAT DOES NOT MEAN U INSTALLED XP MEDIA CENTER
Now there are 2 ways to solve ur problem
1. Either get a NEW disc from microsoft or any computer shop for media center and then install it.
OR
2. Install XP home on your system and then try to put the CD for media center , it will update XP to media center . In this way u will get the media center back and u will also not lose any previous stored data.
NOTE: In both the above cases u will have to get the CD for Media center......
Wat matters is losing the data that is already stored on your system.
BUT AGAIN I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND HERE IS THAT INSTALLING XP HOME WILL NOT GET BACK U TO MEDIA CENTER AS THEY ARE DIFFERENT BUT IT MAKES NOT DIFFERENCE WHETHER IT IS XP HOME OR MEDIA CENTER AS ONLY DIFFERENCE IS ENTERTAINMENT>>> IN THE WORLD THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE USING XP HOME THAN MEDIA CENTER>>>

I would recommend to cont. with XP home
