There is absolutely NO way I could have figured this out on my own. 'Darnitol', you've done it once again! Thanks SO much.

A small side note. It seems that you have to do this configuration for each USB port that you want to use once. It is not universal across all USB ports, only the one that is being used when you select the Microsoft USB driver. I mention in case you happen to plug your cable into a different USB port after you get it working. Man Windows is awesome!

I adapted these steps from another source, but here's the basic run-down for using most legacy URC remotes on Windows 7.

Install Windows Mobile Device Center
Connect the remote via USB

Note: Do not let the remote go to sleep during the remaining steps.

Double-click the exclamation mark in Device Manager
Click "Update Driver"
Click "Browse My Computer"
Click "Let Me Pick"
Choose "Mobile Device"
Choose "Microsoft" as the manufacturer
Choose "Microsoft USB Sync"

Windows Mobile Device Center should now open, and the remote should chime when it connects.

I know this is old, but I just wanted to thank you for this post. I thought I needed to order an "original" cable for the older 3000's, but it turns out it was just a driver error.

I followed your instructions and I can now use my remote!

Thank you!

So has anyone tried Windows 8, the MX-3000 and the MX-3000 software? Windows Mobile Device Center does not run under Win 8. If anyone has a workaround, it would be great to know. If I find anything I'll report it here.
When in doubt, mumble.

I having the same issue with my MX-3000 that I just replaced because of damage and since the hard drive on the computer had to be replaced thus the communication problems. I having problems accessing the blog, it says it's for invited guests only.

Did anyone ever get the MX-3000 software communicating with the remote when running Windows 8 or 10? If it is not possible, I am unfortunately going to have to keep a Windows 7 PC.
