Digital Blue QX5... | Answered on Feb 18, 2016

Sorry, but there are no 64-bit drivers for the QX3. You need to find a Windows 7 system running the 32-bit operating system. The instructions for installing the QX3 with 32-bit Windows is document on this site.

Sorry, the QX3 does not work on 64-bit systems. The drivers are not compatible. There are instructions available for using the QX3 with Windows 98, Me, XP and 32-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7 and even Windows 8.

the microscope may be trying to draw too much current from your USB ports, your computer will disable the device if it does this. When this happens one of the easiest (and cheapest) solutions is to acquire a Powered USB Hub (with it's own Plug top power supply). This should aleviate any extraneous current draw to the Power supply.
