A long time ago I had bought an hp all in one system and it came with a remote an receiver to control windows media. The other thing is it had windows vista. I wanted to move this remote and receiver to my older computer containing windows xp 32 bit operating system. When I plugged it in the old computer it did not reconize the device and and required drivers for it. Just as I though. My question is, is there a way I could get the drivers for it to work so I could use this remote on my old xp?

The remote is called an eHome infrared receiver (USBCIR)

Btw I already tried upgrading windows media.

The IR receiver hasn't really changed much since Windows XP Media Center Edition so should work with the correct drivers.
