Windows 7: XircomRex USB Docking Station

XircomRex USB Docking Station

I have just purchased a new computer with Windows 7. I use a REX 6000 PDA which I was able to install the software for desktop, etc. However, I am unable to connect my Usb docking station. Windows 7 will not recognize it. Suggestions?

If you are running Win 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can try downloading and installing XP Mode and see if the USB drivers for it work within XP Mode.

How old is your Rex? I had a Rex Pro around 1996 or so. Mine was so old that it synced via a serial cable, not USB. Neat little gadget but newer PDAs and smartphones I've used since then are far more capable.

Thanks, but I am such a novice I don't know how to access XP mode. The Rex6000 is used by my wife. I still am so old fashioned I use the older model and am quite satisified with the limited performance. Have a good week.

When you plug in the USB cable does it even attempt to install the drivers?

No. I get a message that the device is not compatable.

OK, in that case, you could try installing the REX software in compatibility mode. See here: HOW TO: Install a Hardware Device Driver using Compatibility Mode - VIA Forums
