3 of my Dell Laptops with either win2k or xp failed, no matter what i tried with the PCMCIA drivers.
i ended up using, GET THIS, a 1995 Commodore (of all makes) PC laptop!!!!!! it had win95 on it - but when i put the MR in, it detected it fine, so i painfully upgraded the OS today to Win98 (non SE2) and have finally done it!!
The update went through lovely - how it should be really!
My MR is now the latest version - and to think, i was gonna bin this laptop. LOL!
Now i need to figure out what this CAM can do for me...
Something to do with the Dell Laptop and the PCMCIA module operating voltage (3.0 and 3.3 volts or something like that )
Apparently the cartridge slot mechanics (a ridge on one side of the CAM module) is supposed to tell the laptop whether it can or cannot power the CAm, but of course this never works (or one forces the CAM beyond the protection limiters).
