Problems with Rainbow Runner and XP?

I have a Matrox Mystique board with Rainbow Runner attached.
It has worked well in the past with Video and can capture and after edit put back out to TV or VCR.
The quality of output was up to Svideo standard.

Although I now use digital for some work I would like to use the Rainbow Runner again but it won't work with XP only with 98SE.
Does anyone know of any update available I have tried the makers but they are not interested but it is a shame to throw it away.

I note that Matrox are saying on their site their is no planned XP updates.

However often Windows 2000 drivers work with XP and those are available click here

THANKS BREMNER. GOOD FAST RESPONSE AND I HAVE JUST LOOKED AT THE LINK.
WILL TRY IT BUT AS I ONLY USE A MODEM AT 56K IT WILL TAKE ABOUT AN HOUR I EXPECT.
18MB IS A LARGE FILE.

THANKS AGAIN AND I WILL LET YOU KNOW LATER IF IT WORKS.

I NEVER THOUGHT OF TRYING 2000 DRIVERS BUT AS THEY ARE BOTH BASED ON NT IT JUST MIGHT WORK ALTHOUGH I HAVE FOUND THAT ISN'T TRUE FOR A LOT OF 2000 THINGS ON XP.
CHEERS

TO BREMNER.
HAVE DOWNLOADED FILE AND TRIED IT BUT XP DOES NOT LIKE IT AND THROWS UP AN ERROR STRAIGHT AWAY WHEN YOU TRY TO LOAD.
wILL GO BACK TO 2000 ON THAT COMPUTER AND TRY THE DOWNLOAD WITH THAT.

THANKS AGAIN
