Unhappy PCMCIA driver having problems using USB 2 DVD Burning

G'day Peoplez,

Ok here is a bit of history with my laptops PCMCIA Card Bus and the Belkin PCMCIA USB2 2 port card: (w w w

The short of it was until I had downloaded the latest ENE Technology Inc CB-710/2/4 Cardbus Controller WindowXP Drivers ( I was only able to read from the DVDs / cds / usb sticks at USB 1.1 speeds.

When I got the new driver I was then able to access devices at full USB2 Speeds and be able to write dvds / usb sticks.

Well it looks like I'm back in the same square one for linux . When I attempt to burn data using k3b my dvd drive just sits there spinning but doing nothing just like last time.

Looking at one of KDE hardware viewer I can see the PCMCIA carbus is using a "yenta_socket".

Could anyone tell me if there is a new / different driver that I can install that will resolve my problem ?

Many Thanks

Here is info about my pc:

[Kernel Version:]

2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.stk16, just updated to this version today to allow my softmodem drivers to work. But even with the original kernel, I still could not burn via the USB2.
