PCMCIA USB 2.0 Cardbus adapter

I'm running W98SE on a Dell Latitude LS laptop, RAM128Mb 4Gb HD.

Needed a new CD-Rewriter - only works direct to single USB port, not
through hub (manufacturer's instructions not tried it as I know the
memory stick I use is the same).   That knocks out my printer and
cordless mouse - I'm happier with that than the touchpad.   I want to
use the rewriter 'cos I'm about to upgrade memory and HD so need file
storage.  S--o, purchased online PCMCIA USB 2.0 Cardbus adapter.  
Initially the driver wouldn't
install but did so eventually, the driver is recognised in Add/Remove
Programs, the eject card shows in the system tray, PCMCIA on Control
Panel shows Socket 1, Socket 2 and (Empty) Socket 3.   But nothing
works through it!.  

Nowhere does it show that the card is a USB 2.0, checking Help tells
me PCMCIA is not supported on this computer and to get a download
from  Microsoft Downloads or Networks, Microsoft Downloads don't list
Can anyone help please?   I'd be ever so ever so grateful and I think
the card would prefer not to go out through the window.

Are you using an external power supply?

The card, itself, may not be providing sufficient power
to run whatever devices are attached.
