Hi all,

I have a USB Infra-Red adaptor that I can't get to work. I bought it at Dick Smith Electronics a long time ago and have since lost the disk that came with it. When I plug the adaptor into my USB port nothing happens on the computer. It doesn't seem to recognise that I have plugged anything This would be because I don't have the drivers right? in. I haven't used the adaptor with this computer before. Does anyone happen to know if there is somewhere I can download the driver for a Dick Smith Ir-DA adaptor?

Cheers

The link had http:// twice - you could just have removed it on the new page when open.

I have fixed the link, it goes to the drivers page for the product DSE Adaptor USB 2.0 to IrDA. If this is not the product you bougtht, then you have to search on DSE what's the product page and see if they have a driver download page.

not sure what the heck happened there...

the link seems to be broken again now.
