Zonet ZUN2200 Issues

I have a laptop (it's an HP, but I turned it into a "vanilla" XP Home machine). This machine only has USB v1.0 and I am lately burning DVD's, so I bought a Lite-On external DVD reader/writer/rewriter. It's taking a long time to burn a DVD with a USB v1.0 connection, so I bought the Zonet ZUN2200 (a PCMCIA cardbus card). When I got it home and opened up the box (it wasn't sealed in shrinkwrap and didn't have a tape seal) I discovered these contents: the card itself, a CD, and a "power cord" (more on that later). Note what was NOT present: a manual. The power cord was described (on the box) as "optional," so I decided to try living without it first. I rebooted my laptop and while it was rebooting I unplugged the DVD drive from the USB v1.0 socket. Once the computer had started, I stuck the ZUN2200 into the PCMCIA slot and it was recognized by XP. Then I plugged the DVD drive into one of the two USB sockets, but the computer didn't "see" the drive. So, I turned off the computer and used the power cord. On one end is a socket to put into the card and on the other end was a plug to be put into the computer's P2 keyboard socket. The cable includes a USB socket, which I guess is for connecting a keyboard (though it would seem to make a lot more sense to have a P2 socket to replace the one you are using). Anyway after powering the ZUN2200 the DVD drive (once plugged in) was visible to the computer, but now the computer simply freezes up from time to time (and fairly soon after you start using it). Anyway, anybody got any ideas what's amiss here before I return the card for a refund?

Re: Zonet ZUN2200 Issues

I have the same problem when connecting my ipod and usb hard drive. I think the card is just a piece of crap. I've also tried a different card before but had no luck either. I guess its time to get a new laptop.

Double check with to see if an updated CardBus driver is available for the Laptop, not the accessory. also look for Chipset and BIOS updates.

Also check out the ZUN220 manufacturer site for a new driver as well.

Machine locks up

install the vendor specifig driver for the PCMCIA. because windows XP sp2 is also able to detect the device and when you push the device online it is detecting and there is some other device which has got same IRQ and that is conflict with this and stop. see any error that is generated in event viwer * run>type "eventvwr" and enter * see the application/system try to detect your error log and see what microsoft says about it. otherwise post the error report Thanks Arun
