driver

Hi, I am using skype on my mac and need a driver to suit my Futiro "Luna" handset.

The disk that came with the packaging is mini and won't fit in the disk slot of my laptop (no tray)

What are my options ?

Re : driver

Hi,

 

Why not to try to dowload it from Futiro support ?

Re : driver

Thanks, I've been there but couldn't find a driver. I downloaded "futiro for skype" but that hasn't helped. Not sure if that was a driver or some other programme. I'll keep looking.

Re : driver

I've just taken a look at the Futiro site, and two things are noteworthy:

 

1. The handset is billed as being compatible with Tiger and Leopard, with no mention of Lion.  

 

2. In the FAQs, Mac users are told specifically NOT to use the minidisk that may have been included with the handset, but to download the software that you have apparently already downloaded.

 

There is a Contact Us link on the Futiro site.  Methinks the surest way to get information is to contact them directly.  Don't forget to tell them what version of OSX you're running.

 

Bon chance...

Re : driver

Thanks, I have Leopard on my mac.

I have contacted Futiro by e-mail, let's see how prompt they are with their help. I'll look at the FAQ's.

I've put the minidisk into a friend's windows laptop and transferred the files to a memory stick in case I can use them but I'll take your advice and not do that yet.

After I downloaded the file from their site there were no prompts as to what to do next so I'm stuck, I'll look in the file and see if I need to poke it.

Apologies for the delay in coming back to you

The problem you are experiencing is a Skype API issue introduced with the latest version of Skype
