Hope you can help. I purchased a NetMD MZN1L for my son at Xmas. However, from the Open MG 2.2 software supplied it seems I cant connect it to my PC without completely upgrading my PC! It's a Compaq Deskpro running Windows 95 with USB support to which I have several devices happily connected (Ive also tried with another W95 USB PC, same problem). The OpenMG software manual states that its not supported even if I get an W95 upgrade version to another o/s (eg: w98(SE) which would still run on my hardware. So by implication, I will have to buy a new 'clean' copy of an o/s to suit my hardware and then I will still have to completely rebuild my PC (or buy a new one) and reinstall all other software applications/devices which im using and then they may not work! Surely forcing me to do this is a bit unfair? Is there no other way (?3rd party driver) that I can install to connect the MZN1 to USB on my PC to get the NetMD functionality? Is this the same with other NetMd maufacturers? Otherwise, I might just as well have purchased a cheaper normal MiniDisc and connected by realtime LineInput to my soundcard? Please advise ASAP, Thanks in hope of salvation.

Despite the Open MG2.2 s/w saying only w98. I tried installing the driver supplied (which is the same as the one on the T-Station NetMd forum) in my w95 (with USB) PC. I obviously had some success as when I then plug in the USB connection from the MZN1 I get a 'plugnplay popup' for an unknown device then its immediately recognised as a NetMD then the device appears installed in Control Panel, Settings, System, Device Manager under USB Controller. BUT alongside the NetMD USB device is an exclamation mark ! and the following message is given when I click on properties.

General TAB - Device Status - Device failure:Try changing the driver for this device. If that doesnt work, see your hardware documentation (Code 2) The Version TAB states 12-11-2001

But what driver can I use? Also, how will it 'appear' as a drive letter? How do I then write to it if OpenMG isnt installed? Sorry if any of the above is a bit naive but I cant believe I really have to trash my W95 system to get this thing to work, do I?

Below is Simple Burner error message
