Well after about the 4th round of testing out my hardware I take it I have an intermittent problem with my USB hub. Why the one time it couldn't be found on my other box, after the MS updates, I'm not sure. But I've tried a couple more times and it connects just find. And the software has found it, in the original box, now twice today out of about 15 attempts.
But please, Ziko, if you could answer my questions from the last post would be very much appreciated. Oh and I do understand that WinXP service pack 2 is the minimum you need to run the software.
And they wonder why a man drinks!
