    Hi all,

    We all know the scenario. Spending many hours on the internet scouring driver sites for the latest driver for our oddball piece of kit. Downloading and installing many different versions, until we find the one that works. Then after a period of time, a day, a week maybe longer. The system goes down, trying the system restore, which half the time won't work. So we end up re-installing everything............Hang on a moment, where is that oddball driver again.....DAMM.....I forgot to save it!.....Yep I know back to the...... Spending many hours on the internet scouring driver sites for the latest driver for our oddball piece of kit. Downloading and installing many different versions, but this time it's different.......I can't find the same driver that worked. It's an absoulute pain in the neck... So please take a tip save that driver file to a re-writable CD/DVD or a thumb drive and keep it safe.....If you find a better driver later you can always overwrite the previous version if you want....

    I know this from first hand expierence.......:eek:
