The M/B is a 10-y-o Abit board with the uGuru control panel thingo hanging off it. I Have two HDs, both Seagate, one runs off the Sata connector, the other off the IDE connector. I have Mate installed as a dual-boot option with Windows 7 Ultimate N (installed it merely because I could NOT get rid of the Mint 17 Cinnamon version I had installed initially - so I installed Win7 first, then Mate)...
The card reader lights up when I switch the computer on, it then names its inbuilt O/S on its own LCD (CyberJack 6.xx, followed by Secoder 2.0), then states: 'Please wait, establishing tunnel' or similar (in German), then goes out altogether.
I have NOT registered the device yet, so haven't contacted Reiner re support... (reason is I ordered the non-RFID model first, had hassles with the distributor, cancelled my (pre-paid) order and ordered the RFID model instead somewhere else - but the first guys sent the non-RFID model anyway. So I now have two readers: the one running off my Win 8.1 PC is fine, I even was able to use the SmartMate software with it. But I prefer to operate off a 'safe' PC, hence Linux LOL).
If I can't get it to work with Mate, I'll try to sell it on ebay...
Thanoks for any ideas!
