Chapter 2: Driver Installation

Windows 10, 8, 7 & Windows Vista (32-bit "x86" Versions)

Windows Installation Screenshot

If not already in your CD-ROM drive, insert the Atarimax USB Cartridge Interface Driver CD now.

Attach one end of a standard USB A/A to the USB connector on the Atarimax USB Cartridge Interface and the other end to a USB port on your PC.

Note: For optimal performance, it is recommended that you plug the interface into a USB port directly on your PC and not a USB hub.

When plugged into your PC or USB Hub, the activity LED on your interface will blink and then glow continuously to indicate the device is ready.

If the activity LED does not blink when plugged in, re-check your connections and try again.

You should see the new hardware notification bubble appear. Note this may appear and disappear very quickly on some systems.

Wait a few seconds for the new hardware wizard to begin.

Click 'Locate and install driver software' to begin driver installation.

You will now be prompted for the driver software as seen on the right.

Click 'Next' to continue driver installation.

If you did not have the CD inserted when you began the installation process, it may take a few seconds for the 'Next' button to appear after CD insertion.

The hardware installation wizard will now search your local CD-ROM drive for the appropriate drivers.

If at any time after this dialog appears you are warned that the driver is 'unsigned' or that Windows 'Can't identify the publisher of this software', press the 'Install this driver software anyway' option to continue.

Please Note: On Windows Vista and Windows 7 you may have to be logged in as an Administrator in order to install new hardware.
