I also noticed that for the DELL M170 XPS, you need to keep the same USB port that you installed it in. For some reason, changing ports will force you to ge the CD out.

Please send the following info to tech support.

What is the Serial # of the device?
It should be located on the end of the cable, near the USB plug, or on the underside of the device.

Could you send us a copy of the Setupapi.log file?
It should be located in the C:\Windows folder

Have you tried the device on another system?

Are you plugging in directly to the system, or are you using a hub?

Have you tried isolating the device on the USB ports?

Could you attach a screen shot of your device manager, and tracking screen?

To make Print Screen work, you must save an image of what's displayed on-screen to the clipboard and then paste it into a document where it can be printed.

Windows Help: Print Screen

To do this, follow this procedure:

1. Maximize the window you'd like to capture.
2. To copy/capture the current window, hold down ALT + Print Scrn at the same time. To capture the entire screen, just press Print Scrn alone.
3. Open a new document in MS Paint, MS Word, MS Photo Editor, or Adobe PhotoShop.
4. Paste the screen shot by holding down CTRL and V at the same time.
5. Save the document as a .JPG or .JPEG file and send it in.

Have you tried turn off any kind of power save feature for your USB ports?

In the "Device Manager" you can right click the "USB Hub"(s) that show and turn off the power saving feature that turn those ports off when idle. Sometimes that has an impact on the connectivity of the devices.

Will this work if for some reason my Track IR has suddenly decided to stop working and it for some reason now says:-

Device info: OptiTrack Unknown
Licence file is not valid

Ive no idea why it is looking for OptiTrack as i have TrackIR 3 PRO, with Vector Expansion, and i installed the latest Track IR 4 software to get the vector working, and it was working. But, for some reason, ive gone to use it today, and it came up with this "Licence file is not valid" and it seems to be looking for an OptiTrack?

I emailed my info to the Natural Point website to check my licence and got an email to say it was all ok and activated, yet cant get software to agree, lol.

Any help please?

I read through the list of things you said, and was about to send an email directly to support like you requested, but then i noticed the bit about isolating the device on the USB ports. I didnt understand what you meant, but i unplugged it and plugged it back into another USB port, and for some wierd reason it started working again, and also says my Vector Expansion is once again active.

Wonder why it did that?

Let me know if you still need me to send my info directly to support, and ill pop an email along to you.

Cheers, I greatly appreciate the support.
