MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver is quite old, why not using MySql ODBC 5.1 driver?

Hi,
 Please install the MYSQL ODBC drivers for windows first.
 Download them from this link: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/5.1.html

After installing them, then you will find the drivers in the list when you attempt to create an ODBC as shown in the image you posted.

All the best

Hi sedgwick,
I think his problem is not how old the drivers are but why the mysql drivers are not available in the list of drivers when he attempts to create a DSN to MySQL.

I hope my explanation is quite sufficient and helpful.
