I need help on this one. I searched the Mircosoft web site and couldn't find anything on it. :)

I have Logitech headset, and now they don't work. I did a search of my computer for files and got this:

The currently installed driver for Logitech MouseWare or Logitech iTouch is not compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and will be disabled during the upgrade. You should uninstall the Logitech drivers and software before continuing with the upgrade.
For more information about this driver, visit the manufacturer's Web site at http://go.microsoft....ink/?linkid=383. Web addresses can change, so you might be unable to connect to this Web site.
For a list of devices supported by this version of Microsoft Windows, see the Microsoft Windows XP Compatibility List at http://www.microsoft.com.


Is there a way to fix this problem? They are expensive and I don't want to go out and buy new ones (been laid off)
Or just suck it up and wait for my taxes and go buy new ones.

IF it can't be fixed can you please tell me what does work with Windows XP so I won't have this problem again.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum!

Basically, any device which needs a driver will work with XP provided an XP-compatible driver is either supplied with it or can be downloaded (usually) from that manufacturer's website. It's primarily the driver (and to a lesser extent any other related but optional software) which determines which version of Windows a device is compatible with, not the actual device itself.

In the case of your headset, then, you need to visit the support section of the US Logitech website and click the link "Downloads + Parts" , which is here: http://www.logitech...._...s/&cl=us,en
