I am at present trying to configure 2 817s and SATPc32 with a Samsung N150
windows 7 32bit starter edition netbook and some CT62 equivalent interface
cables using the Prolific chipset.
I cannot claim that I yet have success but the one major lesson learnt last
night (late) was that you have to install all the software and drivers by
clicking on "run as administrator" -maybe obvious and already well written
up but I had missed it:)
