I've tried moving the LW 7.5 USB dongle from a front to a rear USB port but it prompts to install new software, fails when installing the software and LW then runs in demo mode.

Is there a trick to this? Am I stuck with leaving the dongle where it is?

Please help as I am completely new to LW.

Regards,
Brian Hay.

You should just move it to the new usb port and cancel the installation of the new software. In case it doesn't work, try to download the latest version of rainbow sentinel dirvers:

I believe it needs to plug into a powered hub. ie: It won't work if you plug it into one of those cheapie 4-way USB hubs.

If you're plugging it directly into your PC, however, then I'd try Garg's suggestions.

the problem is only in the usb port, probably you need an alimented hub.
lw not check or see the number of usb port where you have attach the dongle.
