I have an old but new-to-me Infineer (Mako) card reader that reads the 'old' EncorePro Smartcards that I have in my pre-2007 Resmed BiPAP machine. I downloaded the EncorePro software and tried to load the appropriate driver for the reader on my Windows7 64-bit machine. I loaded the software about couldn't seem to load the driver. I gave up, but after sitting overnight, the card reader started working. I noted that the device manager showed the Mako Smartcard reader in the driver list. I didn't understand what happened, but I successfully downloaded data from my card and generated a report using the EncorePro software.
Fast forward to today and the reader does not work. There is no driver shown in the device manager list and no matter how I try to reload the driver, I cannot get the machine to recognize the device. I get erros like unknown device and when I try to install a driver manually, it does seem to work.
