    That's just the way they worded the ad.
    Means plugging in a plug and play device and
    hoping it works.:)

    Yes, it's a play on words. ;) While the "plug and play" feature of Windows is SUPPOSED to be easy.........many people, over the years, have found that when it does not work as it's supposed to,.......it's one of the worst things to try to fix.

    Thus, you "plug and pray" that it works as it's supposed to. :p :D

    I thought it might have been something along those lines :p but not having trouble with Plug and Play myself I thought it might have been a typo.

    That's still better than the old days, of making sure you loaded the correct driver, making sure there were no port conflicts, did you have the correct operating system, did something conflict with something else.....

    And I think the likelihood of it working is inversely proportional to how bad you need it. :D
