 Uhm, yeah, I know that there are no other drivers for their devices!
 What I suggested was that you try ANOTHER device entirely with another
 driver.  I have had an unfortunate experience previously where I had
 spent about a day helping someone debug this sort of problem, someone
 who was also using an ET Inc device and finally we reached the
 conclusion that the driver was outdated by some minor interface
 changes.  I had received less than helpful support from the ET Inc guys
 then and I am not about to begin debugging a problem of this sort
 involving their driver until I am sure that it is not their driver that
 is somehow involved in the problem.
