New Hardware - Parallel device

  phil.smith 14:37 09 Jul 2007

I have just reinstalled XP and am now adding my USB hardware. I think I have covered all except I now keep getting "Found new hardware - Parallel device" at startup.

What could the Parallel device be? I have a Seagate External drive which is working and shows on "My Computer".

I have a Dell Axim PDA attached

Have you looked in Device Manager for the yellow triangle and exclamation mark?

The only thing I can guess at, is that your printer may somehow have a parallel option rather than USB as a default.

Have just resolved it by taking off my Dell Axim PDA - it seems that this was the Parallel device

Thanks for you help
