i had the same problem with the AR and getting it to work on vista and xp
try this , right click on my computer, choose "properties." Then choose "hardware," and then "device manager."
Next, click the + next to USB Serial Bus Controllers, or it might be under USBIO Controlled Devices.
Now, look over the list, then unplug your AR cable. One of the hardware items will disappear from the list. Plug the cable back in, it will reappear. This is the only way to really identify for sure which device you need to look at.
When you know you have the right device, right click on it and choose "properties," then click on the "details" tab. See the long number? It's like: "USB/VID_058F&PID_9380"
now open the file xbreadr.inf this can be found in your Programs, Datel, Action Replay, Drivers.
Scroll down a bit until you see the header: "[_Devices]" below it is a list of a bunch of lines like this: "%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_05FD&PID_DBAE"
copy any line and paste it at the top of these lines. Then, change the line so that the appropriate numbers match YOUR device's numbers (the numbers in the details) so for example "%S_DeviceDesc1%=_Install1, USB\VID_058F&PID_9380
save and close.
now back in the property pages click update driver, and point it to the xbreadr.inf in your Programs, Datel, Action Replay, Drivers folder,
install the driver, then try reloading the AR or Max drive
this worked for me
hope this works for you.
