Toshiba Infinity 7201 intouch module trouble

Upgraded machine with new motherboard combo. Left windows me and reinstalled to find new hardware. Now the Toshiba intouch module is not working (was working with win me and original hardware). USB ports on new hardware are working, printer, scanner, mouse...

I have been told by toshiba support sorry we wont help you because win me is not the original OS... The module is usb connected and I end up with a blue screen when I have the software installed to use it. There are two files Toshiba has to operate the unit (found in the intouch subdirectory), when these are loaded to use the module a blue screen appears.  I have found usb support drivers only for win95b. Any ideas?

Have you tried windows update, to allow it to find the updated software automatically?

Good question. Should I try the update with the unit attached and with the driver that is giving me trouble?

Try to instal another OS on another partition (eg XP) and see if it works.I know, takes long, but will tell you 100% where the error isn't :)

Yes then when the software searches for updates, it will pick it up (hopefully)
Good luck
