Works Great!

SYBA SD-U2DLCAB Black USB 2.0 Easy Transfer Cable for Windows Vista, RoHS.
SYBA SD-U2DLCAB Black USB 2.0 Easy Transfer Cable for Windows Vista, RoHS.

Pros: Worked fine once the proper drivers were installed. Good Syba Support. Very reasonable price for something you will only use once.

Cons: The supplied drivers wouldn't work with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 & 32-bit XP. Sent an email to Syba support and they responded over night with detailed instructions and where to get the proper drivers. Once I did that it works just fine with no problems

Overall Review: I believe the problems had to do with the 64-bit requirement. I don't know for sure, but suspect it will work with the supplied drivers on a 32-bit system.

Pros: Drive is now working properly and excellent value

Cons: Drive would not read when I got it. Contacted Sony/Nec and they suggest that I update the firmware from 1.03 to 1.04. To do this, you much change DMA to PIO and shut down any anti-virus protection. Double click the file and you're off and running. Once I did this, the drive worked as it should
