I need to change a driver so I've tried a few things.

I have disabled Automatic Driver Installation but it was finding the driver on the device.
So I went into device manager and tried to update the driver*, Windows determined that it had the best driver.

I need to change the driver and it won't let me install the driver manually and won't let me change it, does anyone have any suggestions?

In case it can help the device is an Xbox 360 120GB Hard Drive that is connected by Datel's XPort. (Link to the product on the name)

I need to use there driver to get the program to see the device. The driver on the device lets Windows see it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks,
Josh


*Not an official manufacturer driver

Hey Josh,
I havent got a fix but it seems to me that this must be a known problem, Have you got a manual for this device? or have you tried to search the net??

Thats exactly what I meant, It must be common place for windows to load the wrong driver if it has got it from the device. So there must be some answers out there.
If this is not the case and this driver is on your PC, then I would search for and delete it so that windows can't load it again.

Thats the best that I can come up with at the mom.

You can try forcing the install through Device Manager. This only works if the driver file (if it is an .exe) and extractable using something like Winrar. If it it is extract it to the desktop and open Device Manager. Then locate the device in Device Manager and right click and select Update driver and select the following,



then click on Have disk,



and browse to the extracted folder and locate the INF,



and then it should show just the driver file you selected,



and install once you click on next.

No promises that it will work, but this method has worked for me whenever I try and install a driver and Windows thinks it has a better one already.

I didn't work the driver is a .dll file.
exe actually :p , or at least the download from Code Junkies is; and you're right, it can't be extracted (or at least by the usual methods).

Anyway have an idea that might work. Just for fun I downloaded the file and installed it and from what I can see it installs everything including the driver file that the program/device uses to the,

C:\Program Files\Datel\XPort 360

folder. Did a search of the entire C drive using today's date and the only thing I could find relating to Xport was in the above folder. So with that in mind if you want to try, I have rar'ed and uploaded the install folder,

Datel.rar - FileFront.com

If you decide to try, download the file and un-rar it and copy and paste (or uncompress directly) the entire folder into the Program Files folder. Before adding it to the Program Files folder rename the original Datel folder (can call it anything you want, Datel2 for example). Once added then try the forced install through Device Manager again.

When I try to load the driver using your folder or the original folder I get this error:

The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows for 32-bit systems. :mad:
