I have similar problem but i have a desktop and using parallel port cable. It alwasy detects my shark 250 when i start-up my PC(windows 2000) and then i said cancel so i can install the 98 driver but then it says something like no digital signature and if i proceed, it says something like unable to install because of previous install. Does anybody have similar problems and found a solution. I would really appreciate it if you can post it here.

thanks much:-)

: What you need to do is go to your device manager and UNDER THE "IDE ATA/ATAPI CONTROLLERS" press the sencond mouse button on the "PCMCIA IDE/ATAPI CONTROLLER" AND DISABLE THE DEVICE. DO NOT UNINSTALL JUST DISABLE. THEN REBOOT. GO BACK TO YOUR DEVICE MANAGER AND THEN ENABLE THE "PCMCIA IDE/ATAPI CONTROLLER" Windows 2000 will then recognize the shark drive and it will show up under disk drives as "AVATAR AR2250SP" and under my computer.

: For some reason you have to do this every time. So before you shutdown again you have to disable it and then enable it when you restart. But it seems to work.
