Downloading From Discover

Using quicken 2009, running on XP Professional, 1 GB ram, Gateway laptop circa 2003.
Browser is Mozilla Firefox 3.6.28 because it is less of a resource hog.

On Update, the transactions are ready to post, but Quicken cannot find my Discover account, even though it is set up. Quicken asks me to choose the account from a list. My Discover account is not in the list.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Sounds like your Discover account may be setup up for One Step Update already.  You can see what is established on the Account List (Ctrl+A).
If you want to use OSU, make sure that you have a Direct Connect download connection by linking to Discover Card and NOT Discover Card Account Center (Express Web Connect and less reliable).
If you are wanting to continue doing your own downloads from the website, de-activate OSU for the account, do the download and this time you should find the Discover account in the list of accounts to select from.  After that, it should make the right connection each time you do a download from the website.

Be advised, as of 4/30/2012, Quicken 2009 will no longer be supported either technically or for online banking:

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
