    hello,

    I have a Dell Latitude D620 with Windows XP Service Pack 3 operating system. I'm trying to download a usb driver to operate an electronic fuel injection system. The system came with an installation CD which allows me to install all but the usb driver. The new hardware install wizard comes on but when I try to proceed I get a message that the software cannot be found. I contacted the company that manufactures the fuel injection system and they sent a usb driver link for me to download. Tried that but still get the same error message. I have a Belkin wireless usb adapter attached to the laptop and it works fine. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Don't really understand how this whole thing is hooked up but, if you are able to do so, you might try a direct hookup to the laptop USB port and bypass the hub. I've seen more than once where a USB hub can cause this kind of anomaly.

    Hello Raybro,

    Thanks for the response. The engine control unit for the fuel injection system is connected directly to the laptop with a usb cable. When I try to connect to the engine control unit I get a message that the software, which I assume they mean a usb driver, cannot be found.

    How does the Belkin wireless USB adapter play into this hookup?

    The Belkin adapter allows me to have internet access, if needed, when i have my laptop connected to the engine control unit in my car. I assumed since the adapter was connected to a laptop usb port and functioned properly, that I shouldn't be having problems using another usb port to connect the engine control unit

    Your assumptions seem valid. Do you have any other way to connect to the internet. For instance, Ethernet. If so you might try downloading the driver hardwired instead of wireless. I think its unlikely to make a difference, but whats to lose?
