I have Windows 2000 USB drivers for my PSION WaveFinder DAB radio receiver but cannot find any for XP. Are Windows 2000 drivers suitable for XP? If so, how do I go about using them?

EDIT: Are there any differences/incompatibilities in 2000/XP driver models?

The Windows 2000 drivers for the device may or may not work under XP. Look for the directory that contains one or more .inf files. If there are several, you'll have to try the directories one at a time.

To give it a try, launch the Add Hardware applet from the Control Panel.

When you are prompted to choose the new device, scroll down to the bottom of the list and choose "Add a new hardware device".

Choose the "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list" option.

Choose "Show All Devices".

Press the "Have Disk" button, and point the textbox to the directory containing the .inf file(s).

Didn't think it would be that simple. Cheers! –  Umber Ferrule Oct 20 '09 at 21:28

Yes if you are lucky - Try going in to computer manager, right clicking the device and doing install driver.

There is no one answer fits all - some thing work but most things do not (don't even think of trying graphics cards!).
