Could it be that your driver (on the installation cd) is for Mac computers? Use this link to download the driver for XP.
The installation disk that I have is for Windows 3.1. I guess it does not recognize XP.
I tried the link you sent but I must have done something wrong as all I have found is the text file that gives me the following instructions:
Before installing the Shark PC Card Windows XP driver,
make sure the PCMCIA driver is enabled and check for
available system resources using the following steps:
1. Click and open: Start -> Settings -> Control Panel ->
SYSTEM -> HARHWARE -> DEVICE MANAGER
2. Click and open: Start -> IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLER ->
PCMICA IDE/ATAPI CONTROLLER.
3. Select the Resources tab to examine available IRQ and
I/O ranges. UNCHECK AUTOMATIC SETTINGS, CLICK CHANGE SETTING.
This driver requires one of the two
following I/O address ranges:
a) 0970-977 OR 0B76-B77
use this one b) 0570-577 OR 0776-777
and one of the IRQ's
2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, or 15
4. CLICK OK
I do not know if anything else was downloaded. Where on my computer woudl the driver be downloaded to?
I do not know how to do the steps in the above procedure.
Any other suggestions?
