2007-04-27 USB Driver - M1000
There are USB drivers for Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP included in this download.

NOTE: Customers that have the new Windows Vista operating system installed, can utilize the USB driver, provided they are running one of the 32-bit versions of Vista. There are no USB drivers available for 64-bit versions of Windows.

(Our RAW Drivers do not use a 'Setup' program to install, instead they are installed via the Windows Hardware Wizard. Once the drivers are extracted the Wizard uses the INF file to install the driver.) Clicking the link above will initiate the download, and at the prompt 'Do you want to run or save this file?' select 'Save'. At the following 'Save As' dialog, be sure to select a familiar location to save the file, like 'My Documents' or the 'Desktop', so that the file will be easy to find later.
