Problems with Type II SRAM cards in Win 2000 platform

The good:

The DataChute PCI works excellent for all my Flash cards.

The bad:

Can't get Type II cards from my DataPAC to be recognized at all.

Summary:

I had the above mentioned problem and could not obtain any support from Antec and was severely disappointed since the producted was depicted to be a multifunctional card reader that would work on Windows 2000. Next purchase would absolutely be from another vendor.

5.0

Doesn't work with multifunction cards in Win2K

The good:

Easy to install

The bad:

Sucks the big one when it comes to multifunction cards.

Summary:

The DataChute PCI was easy enough to install in my Win 2000 PC but I could never get it to recognize a multifunction communications card (AirCard 510). I never had this problem with Win 98SE or on any laptop, so the PC Card is not the issue. Also, memory cards work like a charm in the DataChute. Your mileage may vary. Guess I will have to try another one or use Win98SE in a dual-boot configuration -- yuck!

2.0

Caused intermittent crash on Win2k in Wireless lan app.

The bad:

Very frequent crashes

Summary:

I bought this product to use with my wireless LAN devices. It gave me much grief before i could pin down the cause of my problem. I have not tried it with a regular PCMCIA LAN card or memory devices. But I am sure that it has definite problems with SMC, or #COM wireless LAN cards.
