    I have recently purchased a wireless usb modem with the network 3.

    When i insert the device it is recognised. However the software for the device is installed on the device, and vista fails to recognise this and askes for a CD to install it.

    I have tried several programs from internet sites but none seem to be the right one.

    The device works perfectly when i use it on a XP computer.

    I have also experienced the same problem with usb flash drives.

    Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Is this device compatible with Vista?
    Since it is asking for a CD I would say NOT. Check the OEM's website for more information.
    You might post the make and model here as we may be able help further.
