I have an old Polar 610 that I used to download into its software via Windows 98. I now have a computer with only XP Pro since I had to give my dual boot 98/XP PC back when I changed jobs. Obviously there is a bit of a conflict. I have done a quick google search to no avail. Has anyone else got around a similar problem?

Before you suggest it computerbitz, I HAVE tried switching it off and on again!

Is it that obvious that i would suggest that :lol: :lol:

Not used it so no idea, but as suggested xp has compatability mode i got a few handouts i used to give students round somewhere if need them let me know and i will dig them out and send you them.

and if all else fails switch it off and on again, but dont search for google in google as you will break the internet :lol: as quoted by jen in this weeks episode
