1.0-7184 was released on the same day as 1.0-8774.  The difference is
that 1.0-7184 is a legacy driver (and is not intended for use with an
FX5200).

You're right, my mistake.

I'm not sure why you think that, unless you know what the problem is,
and how it can be fixed.

No real good reason, I'm just skeptical.  I would definitely recommend
using the correct driver, I just wouldn't expect it to solve the
problem.  That'd be awesome if it does.
