Simply put: you just cannot get the darn thing to work and you need to install the software and drivers that came with the CD.
Here's how you get to doing that (in Windows 7):
- Click on the Start icon at the bottom left of your screen (it is the Microsoft logo with a blue background circle).
- In the Search box at the very bottom of the menu, type in 'run' and hit 'Enter' on your keyboard.
- Next to where it says 'Open', type in 'hdwwiz' and select 'OK'
Thanks for looking!
