Right click on the unknown device, choose properties, then the details tab, then from the drop down bar, choose hardware ID.

Copy and paste the lines from the Hardware ID window into a reply here, then we can see what hardware needs a driver.

Cheers.

Good to hear! Thanks for including it in the response... I was thinking it would be just that, but wanted to make sure before I suggested it.

Cheers.
