    Hi all,
    Having a load of trouble with installing a Zydacron z353 pci codec onto three pcs :x , all of which are coming up with the same errors - windows was unable to initialise this device.

    The card is fine as it works on a lower spec machine.
    The spec of the pcs are mobo - Soltek sl-b8e-fgr with a cpu of 2.8 H/T, with a gig of ramand one pci slot, the other is a msi 651m, cpu 1.8, ram 512, pci slots 3.
    Have done alll the updates still same error - any ideas would be great and I would be eternaly grateful.

    Have a good weekend in advance

    Just a long shot, Matt, but are the codecs specifically for the version of OS your using ?

    Sorted :D

    It would appear that following the instructions is not always a good idea, they state that you must have the camera connected before firing up the pc, but it seems that the camera is drawing too much power from the pci card so the OS cannot see the card. Took 3 days to get that sorted as the so called tech sp kept saying we must be installing it wrong. We have been doing this for three years.
    We got a guy coming in today so I will (if you are interested) keep you informed as to our "discussion" :x . we are a bit fed up doing all their beta testing for free so may invoice them for our time.

    Thanks for the response though its good to have this sort of backup when things are at their darkest

    Hope you all had a good weekend.
