I just want to use it for storage. USB 1.1 is so slow. Can you guys post photos of your cards that do work on 1997-1999 boards?
The card that I have is some ultra cheapie with a VIA VT6212L but it simply doesn't work on chipsets before 2000-2001. My guess is the controller isn't the problem, the card's construction is.
Funny... I have that exact card and it works ok on my 440BX system with Win98SE. I bought one a few weeks ago on eBay for $3.00. Speeds are erratic, but it definitely works.
My Retro Gaming PC:
Pentium III 450MHz Katmai Slot 1
Transcend 256MB PC133
MSI Geforce 2 MX400 AGP
Ensoniq ES1371 PCI
Sound Blaster AWE64 ISA
