    Setup the remote so it installs necessary drivers, get rid of all extra software. Setup girder with creative device (get plugin at girder.nl). Get Coyotes sample girderfile. Load it, play around with it. Let girder 'learn' your different keys.

    If you are still lost, check the help section on girder.nl for basics, it got me started.

          Check here for creative remote plugin.
          Install it in girder plugin dir. Open girder-settings-plugins,
          look for window on the right, scroll down, there you must enable the plugin.
          Also auto-enable plugin device for next startup.
          if you press a key on your remote the little light on the right hand bottom
          corner in girder should flash green.
          To install Coyotes girder file, just 'open file' it in girder
          and then make girder 'learn' your Creative keypresses (learn button).
          Be sure to save after you learned your keypresses.

                Make sure the file ends with .GML
                I think if you copy and/or save it, XP auto-renames it to .xml due the file characteristics which are or resemble a xml file.

                    So it was changed to .xml?
                    Try to load it with 'import group'?
                    what version of girder you use?

                    I guess I'm out of idea's.

                    Maybe address Coyote with this problem in the Mediacar section?

                          Try to load another .gml file from girder.nl,
                          just to narrow down the problem.

                          if it gives the same error, it's not in the Coyote file,
                          if not, try a fresh download of Coyotes .gml file.

                          I'm using girder 3.2, but I can't believe they wouldn't
                          make it backward compatible.

                            I struggled with it for two days,
                            but I can tell you it has been worth it.

                            There are 2 1000+ posters on this board
                            who use this setup, I think.
                            Defiler and CCSNet. Maybe pm/address one of them in the Mediacar section?

                            Also see the girder forum, home of the real geeks.

                              A little OT here but same device...

                              Is it possible to get a serial-to-usb converter and get the Creative remote to work? I couldn't find any USB IR receiver anywhere cheap. And I already use my Xenarc Serial TS on the serial port. Can I use a serial-to-USB for the touchscreen then if not the remote???
