"It works, as far as I know. Windows Update upgrades it automatically to a Microsoft Compatibility-signed version, the latest one available: 7.4.2.105. That one version was released on April of 2008, and it should be available here. In short, I didn't get to use it very long 'cos of that update. Other than that, it works."

How to Install a driver from Device Manager

  1. Locate the device and model that is having the issue and double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  2. Select the Driver tab.

  3. Click the Update Driver button and follow the instructions.

In most cases, you will need to reboot your computer in order for the driver update to take effect.

Tech Tip: Driver downloads and updates come in a variety of file formats with different file extensions. For example, you may have downloaded an EXE, INF, ZIP, or SYS file. Each file type has a slighty different installation procedure to follow.
