"This worked for my BT-932 Flashpoint DL BusLogic SCSI card:

Unzip the flashpnt.zip into a folder somewhere.

As PinBalWiz mentioned, you need to wield some magic on scsi.inf to get it to work with Windows XP. Here's what you do:

"Worked fine! Unzipped it, browsed to scsi.inf, and it showed a compatible device. Installed without a hitch. No renaming, no popups, nothing.

Using XP MCE 2005 with latest updates."

"Got the same win95 error prompt everyone installing on XP did. Was p*ssed as I have TWO (2) FlashPoint LW ultra SCSI PCI adapter cards unopened in retail sealed boxes by Mylex. Apparently Mylex is no more but these are excellent cards with their own satin smooth, very intelligent bios. Renamed \windows\inf\scsi.inf to scsi.unf and copied the flashpnt.sys to \windows\sys

"Works well for me on XP Pro

Copied scsi.inf to \windows\inf folder after moving original scsi.inf to a backup folder and browsed to the flashpnt.sys when asked by windows.

Thanks"

"I have a Flashpoint LW BT950 SCSI host adapter with raid capbility 64Meg memory. I can't get windowsXP to accept the driver. I note two different answers to this driver. it works great or like me, I can't get it to work. Is it possible that it has to do with the version of the ROM software. I believe that I have ver 2.02"

"For those of you who didn't get it to work, you must delete the scsi.inf file in \windows\inf to make this work, at least in my vrsion of XP Pro. It doesn't help to merely rename it, it must be deleted or moved out of the directory. If you can't find the \windows\inf directory, go to control panel, folder options, the view tab and enable Show Hidden Files and Folders. T
