we nearly always have to install drivers provided by the manufacturer/supplier of the hardware.
Can you say where you got this foot pedal from, and did it come with any CD with setup instructions?
I am a medical transcriptionist and I am trying to get my foot pedal to work for my job. It is a plug and play device and when I plug it in the "New found hardware wizard" pops up. I go through all of that and it cannot find it. When I go to the device manager the USB port has a ? beside it. I try to update the driver, but still doesn't work. When I plug my printer and jump drives into the USB port they work fine. HELP!!
I have a Dell Optiplex GX 270 with Windows XP.
