Sorry, the QX3 does not work on 64-bit systems. The drivers are not compatible. There are instructions available for using the QX3 with Windows 98, Me, XP and 32-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7 and even Windows 8.

the microscope may be trying to draw too much current from your USB ports, your computer will disable the device if it does this. When this happens one of the easiest (and cheapest) solutions is to acquire a Powered USB Hub (with it's own Plug top power supply). This should aleviate any extraneous current draw to the Power supply.
