Just had a reply from Trust.

"In Windows 98 only, the card needs to be physically installed before the
driver."

I thought for all PCI devices, regardless of O/S, that you install it first then install the drivers when your PC boots and the new hardware wizard kicks in?

The instructions on the CD said install drivers first! We live and learn.

No, that's not true.

I think that you mean (the majority of) USB devices - this is presumably a USB PCI card.

Sorry, it was USB device drivers I WAS referring to - PCI cards have to be installed first otherwise Windows, as you infer, normally won't be able to find new hardware and install the drivers.

I installed a Sunix 2.0 USB PCI card about 10 days ago - the instructions for both earlier versions of Windows and Windows 2000/XP detail that the card is installed first.

Obviously XP and 2000 use the built-in drivers and earlier versions the CD-ROM drivers.
