PCI Simple Communications Controller

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased a 9 pin parallel port card. When i plugged it into my ATI motherboard my OS (Windows XP x64) was unable to install the device.
I read a recent thread about PCI Simple Comms. Controller and apparently that has to do with a modem/network adapter, however i assure you that when i remove the parallel port card the PCI Simple Comm. Controller dissapears from the Device Manager.
I do not know the manufacturer and usually when this is the case i go into the registry and look up the PCI info. In this particular case the device info is as follows : PCI\VEN_9710&DEV_9835&SUBSYS_00121000&REV_01
pcidatabse.com does not know what device is therefore i'm having a hard time finding a driver to install the card.
I have a CD that came with the card however there are thousands of drivers on the CD and none of them appear to work with a x64 OS.

Thanks a million to whoever can bail me out of this one!

A quick google of the DEV/VEN led to this driver download:

install.westgatesoftware.com/Drivers/IO/OLD%20IO/MultiIO%20(OTHER)/220n-2/win95/NmMulti.inf -

Tech details are here:

Thanks for the link.

However it didn't work. It appears that this would have worked on a x32 OS but not on 64x machine. Anything else i can try???

NetMos 9835 refers to the chip on the board. Not the vender of the board.

The newest driver I found for it is dated 07/22/2003.
Windows XP x64 was released in April 2005 so that driver would be 32 bit like the other and not work for you.
