 I have a COM PCI Card in an old W2K pc that is about to be replaced but I need to get it working for a little bit longer. I had to replace the HDD and I am missing the drivers for a COM PCI card. I have been unable to identify the card so I am posting pictures of the card in hopes that somebody has a similar card and can Identify it. The files are large but I wanted to make sure they have a lot of detail to help identify them. Also, If I put it in one of my new Win 7 PC and use a program that can identify hardware, it should pick it up correct?

Well it looks like an RS-422/RS-485 card. Per the manufacturer's website above, "All ACCES cards, except for USB products, have support for DOS, and Windows versions from 3.1 through XP and beyond."

If you can't get the card to work in win 7, can you afford a pcie controller?

Better question, what sort of industrial device are you controlling that needs RS-422/485? Once the driver issue is fixed, will the old software work in win 7?

First thanks for helping identify the card so quickly. Second, card is used in a Windows 2000 PC. This reason I mentioned the Windows 7 PC is because if I needed help identifying the card. I figured I could installed it in a PC that has Windows 7 and it would maybe help identify the card.
