Hello everybody. I bought an ATI All-in-Wonder 128 Pro (to digitize VHS, of course) and put it into an Athlon XP 2400+, Win XP SP3 machine, fresh install:
I went through the guide on Hacking ATI MMC 8.7 to work on 128PRO
but failed the initial driver installation. "ATI-128pro-drivers-1st-wxpw2k.rar" throws an "INF Error" during installation, telling me it can't find the card and that I should first install it with a generic VGA driver.
Prior to the installation, the GPU was shown in Device manager by its name (with an added "Ultra" suffix) and a microsoft driver, so I'm guessing that's what they meant. I tried restarting, removing the device driver, choosing to update the driver and pointing it to the exctracted driver folder (didn't work, it didn't find a driver).
I was able to complete the guide using the Rage 128 (Pro) win XP driver 6.13.3279 from here
which installed ok. Device manager now shows an All-in Wonder 128 Pro AGP, driver 6.13.3279 from 9/26/2001, but nothing in the MMC really works.
The card IS shown In Multimedia Center Configuration, but selecting it does nothing and it says "(Unsupported)":

Clicking on "TV" in the launchpad (which I'm guessing is how you get to the "MMC dock" mentioned here
) just gets me the loading screen and gets stuck:

Any ideas what to try next? The card may of course just be faulty, I don't know. It was sold to me as "working", but who knows to what extent it was tested.
