Do you get any response when you plug in the ThumbDV? Have you tried all 3 USB ports? If there is no driver it should look for one automatically.
Have you followed my instructions to add the COM ports?

Thanks for the advice John but excuse my ignorance but how do I get this FTDI driver? I'll try searching for FTDI driver and see what I come up with. Believe me all suggestions are appreciated. I love this new laptop, but I sure would like to be able to use my ThumbDV, :-).
