Smart-Linq data USB transfer problem

You guys probably don't know anything about this, but I don't know where else to turn. There was no support # for Smart-Linq in the package it came in.  :-(

I'm using this Smart-Linq data transfer system via USB cable to try to transfer data from my Win 98 computer to my new Win XP computer. A couple of problems:

(1) The driver wouldn't install on my brand new XP Home computer. It would say that it didn't jive with the Windows XP Authenticity or something like that, and then I get a blue screen of death and my XP system would re-boot. There's no specific XP driver for the Smart-Linq - just Win 95/98/ and 2000.

(2) I have another not-quite-so-new XP Home machine that Smartlinq DID install successfully (no blue screen of death... weird). But during data transfer between it and the Win 98 machine, it would often miss a lot of files that should have been copied...very unreliable. Especially folders with several sub-directories - it would often just skip over several of the subdirectories it should have transferred.

Anybody have any experience with Smart-Linq?

Thanks

I do not have one. They are rather cheap, so if you cannot get his to work in XP, I suggest getting a different model that will work with XP. It seems that this model was not designed to work with XP.

However, here is the Product Manufacturer's website:
http://www.veriplus.com/index.htm

Here is the Product information page:
http://www.veriplus.com/pub/usb/usblink.htm

Here is where they 'Claim' you can download a driver that will work with Windows XP. Click on the link that says BF100C - W98/ME/2000/XP:

I hope this helps!
