this nokia CA-42 clone cable has ARK3116 chip and is detected as "USB to UART" or "ArkMicro USB to UART" with Vendor ID (VID) 6547 and Product ID (PID) 0232 (on windows 7 64bit at least - but no drivers for win7 here)
ArkMicro Technologies, Inc.
has drivers for win xp (32bit at least), but none for windows 7 64bit (and probably not for 32bit either, and likely not for vista either, but maybe yes for win2k)
Be advised, I used these with puttytel.exe on 57600 rate on win xp 32bit and after a short while (few minutes) I got blue scree
