Re: Miniature CD, ZD1211 Not working
What's wrong with it is that the driver CD was undoubtedly created for Windows. Windows .exes won't run on Ubuntu Linux. Don't try to put wheels from a Ford on my sleek black BMW!
The driver zd1211rw is built-in but requires firmware which may not be included on a default install. Let's verify what you have before we make a mistake by guess-work. Please insert the device and then open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and run and post the results of these commands:
The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard on the same key with \.
sudo modprobe zd1211rw
dmesg | grep -i zd12
