Vista Ready board does not see XP only peripherals
I have a little problem here. My car computer was already built with an old dell motherboard that I had with no problem. I worked fine, it recognized all my usb devices and then one day, it just died. I guess too much vibration or something but whatever. I bought a new board. So I configure it, put it in my case and wire it to the car. When I first turned on the car, I figured it would start detecting all my usb devices.
3. Zippy lighted keyboard
4. Griffin Volume control knob
5. CD Rom
6. Holux GM-210 GPS Receiver
7. Bluetooth Dongle
8. Hauggpauge IR receiver w/ remote
So when the board booted up, it detected the touchscreen, mouse, cd rom and bluetooth dongle. The light on the griffin is on but xp does not detect it. I unplug it and replug in and i dont here the 'ding.' Same with the GPS receiver, it shows the power light, but again, xp does not see it and with the
same with the hauggpauge receiver. It shows the light on the front as if i was constantly pressing the button on the remote. The wierd one is the zippy keyboard. It does not even light or or work or anything.
I had to plug in a ps2 keyboard and I went through the bios to see if there was any setting the prevented the detection of usb keyboards. None.
So I thought that maybe it was cause it was a crappy board, so I sent it back and ordered and newer, better board.
Again, after configuring it and wiring it back in the car. I shows the same problems. All the peripherals that didnt work before, still do not work.
I did some research regarding Vista and I found the the Griffin does not work with Vista because Vista completely redid the say it reproduces sound, also found out that the Hauggpauge IR receiver does not work with vista because Vista only works with MS only IR receivers and I'm guessing that my Holux is already too old to work with Vista because I couldnt find any news about it and it has been discontinued.
So my question is this. If a board is made for Vista but compatible with XP, does that make it not compatible with XP only hardware. If it doesn't, is there any thing I can do to make it recognize my hardware. Sorry for the long post but this has been bothering me for a while, thanks!
