Unknown Device Showing Up...
After unsuccessfully trying to install Windows Mobile Device Center, and it
did not find my AT&T 8525 pda...I now have 2 Unknown Devices showing up in my
Device Manager, along with pop-ups looking to install drivers, which are
never found. How can I remove these Unknown Devices and related pop-up
messages?

Thank you,

Marc

RE: Unknown Device Showing Up...
I have a similar problem, recently my computer stopped recognising my
external hard drive (:/E) . it had a drive :/E which it say is a CD drve but
does not exsist in reality. when i click on it it says please insert a CD
then takes me to my hard drive but won't display any of the files, it's
really frustrating! the only way i can see around it is to delete that entry
but i don't know how to do it i've tried everything. please someone help!

Right click on the entry and choose uninstall device. You need to be
indevice manager to do this. When you reboot it may say it has found
new hardware if the device is attached. Post a screen print. When I
have my system up and running I will try and tell you more.
