    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    Ah! Ok, my bad, I mave Myopia.

    Ok check this:

    Prolific USB-To-Serial Driver - Page 4 - Windows 7 Help Forums

    and this

    BSOD Problems - Tech Support Forum

    It appears that the file is problematic, they suggest finding the latest drivers for whatever that file is connected to, a piece of hardware?

    It may be that we have finally found one piece of hardware which is incompatible with Windows 8

    I'll do more searching.

    Windows 8 64 bit

    thanks mate..but guess I am out of luck with my device..the chip inside (PL-2303HXA) does NOT work with Win 8

    pls see this link


    • Windows 8 is NOT supported in PL-2303HXA and PL-2303X EOL chip versions.

    I will buy some other Win 8 compatible device.

    But thanks a lot for all the hard research done.

    May I ad another piece of incompatible HW to your colection. It's a TCT Mobile Limited, One Touch X090s Alcatel 3G modem. Drivers are dead duck. Could not find them, install and use. On w7 works perfectly. Heck, it works even on Linux Mint.

    Too Bad, you MAY be able to fool Windows 8 into using the Windows 7 drivers. this is the first time I have heard of devices not being supported in 8, I run three computers with very old hardware, and I'm lucky I have gotten everything to work. We should make a permanent post somewhere and list all of the devices that have been documented that don't work.

    Wall, no big deal, I just unlocked an Huawei 3G modem from other provider and use that when out of reach of WiFi. 3G modems work pretty much everywhere where cell phone service is available and that means whole Europe. The thing with this modem is that drivers and software are hard coded and there's no way to get to it. So the drivers that work for W7 install but do not work with W8 for some reason.
    Anyway, you are right, there is so incredibly large driver base for such a new OS. You'll never believe the stuff I got working on W8, some raelly ancient stuff. Like a HP 4L laser printer,and even Epson FX80 dot matrix. The important thing is to be connected to internet when connecting new device and in 99% drivers (not always optimal ) will be found and installed. Last time I installed Win8 here on my computer, I had all kinds of devices connected and by the time win installation finished I had all the drivers installed, even the one or two I forgot that are connected.
    One more goof up was when windows found wrong drivers for my K.World TV card but fortunately Win7 drivers worked..
