    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    You can't load those 32bit XP drivers in win7, thats because the driver structures are different, same thing in vista. If you got the 64bit version of vista/win7, your 100% SOL trying to load 32bit drivers on a 64bit system. There is also NO SUCH thing as compatibility mode for drivers, that is only for programs.

    Your only suggestion is to use a real XP box. It does work on a XP netbook, if you want to spend some cash for one.

    I got it working under XP mode in windows 7. First download XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx). When I booted XP mode I looked at the drop down at the top, chose usb, and selected Unknown device. I then installed the drivers on the XP box, followed the normal procedure, and was able to flash the games to my F2A

    I got the same problem, but found out that the hardware ID of the driver wasn't right.
    Maby you could try the driver from this rar file, it worked at my windows 7 x86 pc.
