It should have been installed by the VT3 software. Look in your VT folder on your C drive. The RS-8 drivers should be inside the Drivers folder.

Same problem here. VT2 build 3890 installs the RS-8 Drivers in the VideoToaster2 Folder but Win2K is oblivious to their presence.

What else has to happen so that the RS-8 will come to life?

Thanks

When Windows prompts you for the drivers, you'll find the file it's seeking in the VT\Drivers\RS8\ folder.

Then go into Preferences and change the RS-8 setting to 'Auto Detect' from the default setting of 'Not Connected'.

Did ALL that, still nothing. No lights, ZIP!

Even after I run the New ardware wizard, selecting the appropriate directory in which to direct the search for drivers, the wizard STILL indicates that it cannot find a suitable driver.

In the Device Manager and on startup, the OS detects the hardware without fail, by name even. The driver just do not load.

what Gives?

If your RS-8 is connected and just doesn't seem to work
and you're scratchin your head feelin' like a big jerk.
Everybody sayin' point to the right directory,
but that wasn't what was wrong
and I knew it had to be

A Windows update, up up up up up
a windows update oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Down in your taskbar is a start menu so fine
click it and select the windows update at this time.
Run the "drivers update" option right in front of you
and the FTDIBUs update is what you want to do!

Windows update, up, up, up, up , up!
a windows update up, up, up, up oh yeah!

As you can probably tell, I'm a little excited that I figured this problem out. I was staring at a deadline that was looming mere hours away. But all is well now in Toaster land.

Thanks for all the help!
