Hi has any one had trouble instaling a Polar IrDA USB 2.0 Adapter using window xp

i didn't have any problems. What problem are you having did you follow the instructions (on the mini CD I think) and install their drivers.

Also have you plugged it into a USB 2.0 not 1.0/1.1 socket?

you also need to install the USB drivers BEFORE connecting the interface, as it should the be detected automatically - Polar do supply an uninstall tool for the USB drivers if you want to start again with a "clean" system and follow the procedures correctly....

It might not work with XP version of windows as I believe (although I may be wrong) as it is a now de-funct system........ first of all make sure the system you are running on is a 32 bit, this is better as Polar run better on 32 bit rather than 64 bit..... secondly, I have the Polar RS800CX run, it works superbly..... I got mine from Amazon, I did write a review for it and I think mine is still the only review for that model of Polar on there...... check it out.
