"This driver is basically non-existant. I downloaded something that does not work at all and now I get about 200 junk emails per day. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME"

"The driver installs alright if you extract and browse for it...however, I've had the same problem with it asking to format a disk, even if the disk is good. Hopefully a new driver will be made..."
