I connected the 536 to my Dell Venue Pro 8 which is running Win 8.1 Pro using the StarTech adapter I mentioned earlier with FTDI chipset and it's running fine with the ARC536PRO beta. It didn't even ask for a driver.

Paul, I wish you could track down my original scanner which I sent back to you a couple weeks ago. I think it would be a great test specimen as this problem occurred very regularly. It was S/N 375Z38002103.

Actually, they do work with windows 8.1. It probably has more to do with the discrete components that make up a specific computer. The prolific drivers fixed the problem I was having with my Surface Pro 2.
