I’m having immense with the external CD-ROM with my sony vaio laptop (SR1-K).

I can reload the operating system by allowing the computer to boot from the CD-ROM - that works.

Unfortunately the drive is just not recognised at all if one plugs in the PCMCIA card - either before switch on or after power-up.

I’m running Windows 2000 and have used the supplied Sony support discs - I tried talking with their support but they were useless.

Does the fact the drive can be used suggest I’m merely missing drivers? I’ve checked the driver is there for a Ricoh compatible cardbus

There are no ! in device manager
