Here are the top five reasons why you may not be able to get your hardware to work with Windows:
  1. You have an outdated or buggy driver - get an update from the manufacturer.
  2. You're using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, but the device isn't supported in a Windows NT environment (yet). My advice: toss it, because most companies is unlikly to add NT support for their older products.
  3. Is it a USB device? You need at least Windows 95 OSR2 (not the original release of Win95) to support USB. What's more, most USB devices require at least Windows 98 to work.
  4. Investigate device manager for any hardware conflicts.
  5. Lastly, make sure it's plugged-in / turned-on / connected properly. RTFM! :)
