Hi,

Try uninstalling and reinstalling the devices with their new drivers individually.  Make sure you follow the instructions in the readme.txt.  Tell me if this helps.  

MS says it is 'sometimes' better to use the SB drivers on their CDROM.

I've kept trying what you suggest. Mostly cause everyone I talk to said the same thing... I had to uninstall and reinstall 6 times before it finally worked. I couldn't get the JAZ drive going, I just couldn't figure that out. Brought it back to the shop and they figured it was a memory address conflict 'tween the JAZ and the Monitor...  Had absolutely nooooo indications that was the problem. But I finally got the thing running.
