Attempt 1: Abject failure. I’m only here because I gave up, plugged my old kit back in and uninstalled all the new software. (So I know I can get it back if I really can’t make this thing play.)
Yes, I did read the manual, before you ask. The manual and the computer kept saying different things.
Besides, it’s perfectly normal for me to screw up installing new stuff (hardware or software) first time out. Then I work out what I was doing wrong (and yes, it usually is me) and it goes perfectly.
I hate computers. I’m going to settle down with some traditional communications technology. (A paper and then a book.) Leave the stupid computer to stew for a few hours.
