Chapter 2: Driver Installation

Windows 7 / Windows Vista (32-bit "x86" Versions)

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

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.


Driver installation is complete.

Press 'Finish' to exit if prompted to do so.

You can now run the Multi-Cart Studio software and your cartridge status indicator in the program should say 'CONNECTED' when the cartridge is plugged in.
