    It appears the firmware for this model doesn't work.

    Could somebody email me their Windows firmware files (the relevant .sys files - see docs/extracting_ucode.txt for more info) to alex at alexhixon dot com?

    I have the same problem now, but I see that the post is very old. Are the files still needed or the problem has been solved? I can send the files through email, please let me know!
