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!
