    drivers don't work for vista. they are for xp only.

    Everyone has spotty success with vista and windows 7.

    if driver won't work on vista, why i can burn game and play with vista ?


    it's only sms saving system, which is my problem

    have i to charge the card before (+-8hrs) ? or it's a legend ??

    I never found the sms to work properly. All I would get is a blank file when dumping to the comp.

    Same thing with the EFA-Linker Simple

    keep dreaming, I got 3 of these things and they all do the same thing.

    besides, nobody sells them anymore, they stopped making them.

    FYI 512Mb ver uses regular battery, 1G ver uses rechargeable
    It's still being sold :

    There is a DSL shaped version :

    I do use xp for Elink, never got sms problem until now, maybe you have to update the ELINK Boot ?

    Updates are new to me coz no need to flash since last summer, they were still at "ELINKSetupV39A.zip". I just checked my elink, it's a 1gb version, my saves are still there. I whish you luck with yours.
