Installing USB
Hardware Drivers

The 2000 Thermal Imaging Camera must be installed once on each available USB port. If you are adding a USB hub, it will need to be installed once on each port out of the hub. If the hub is connected to a different USB port on the computer, it will again need to be installed on each output port of the hub. When the camera is plugged into a USB port on which it has been previously installed, the computer will make a chime-like sound if the sound volume is not muted and turned up enough to be audible. If it has not been installed, the "New hardware" message will be displayed in the lower right corner of the screen on Windows XP systems.
