PC installation help

Postby Josh_zn » Thu Mar 06, 2014 1:33 am

Hi Guys I need some help. I bought the PC based version from Shaz and I cannot install the application or any files. The kit came with a purple color Usb stick. My PC doesn't show the Usb when installed...I cannot see it as a drive. I've followed the instructions and I am at a loss. In disk management the Usb shows as unallocated and uninitialized. It's seems a drive path cannot be set unless I'm doing something wrong.

I have a Windows 7 professional 64bit. Also ensured that the machince was started without digital signed drivers ooption.

Please help.

Thanks

I think possibly windows 7 could be your problem.

Try a xp machine

Try a clean install of Windows. Maybe try a different copy? Also, some mobos have compatibility issues with certain operating systems....what mobo are you using?

I have a very old xp machine which I tried but the machine won't get the driver for the purple Usb stick.
What is a mobo:)?

It not Windows, the USB stick may be faulty.
Try a diff stick on the the same machine. How many USB ports do you have ?

Yeah I'm hoping it's not the stick. I have 4Usb ports on my one machine and 3 on the older xp machine . I'm asking Shaz since he used the last life on it. The drive can be seen in disk management but is unallocated and not initialized... And I don't see any way of allocating.. I tried nothing happens :(

Mobo=motherboard. Is it just files from the usb stick that don't install? Chances are it's the stick then if it's giving issues on another pc.

The Usb in question does install , I see my machine install the driver and it says device is ready. But it will not show up as a drive. The dsci app when launched then throws and error asking for the path to this drive.

Resolved ...UK guys at dreamscience advised...Windows7 needs to boot up without digital driver signatures...press F8 and select from boot options.
The app with the cable finally openned and I can now see all the maps and options.
Haven't as yet connected the car and uploaded a map. Will try out tonite. My laptop is dead and can't charge...Damn Eskom load shedding:)
