Also had problem  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I had a problem with Vista64 and this Adapter too (maybe). I say maybe because it seemed to work fine connecting my IC756 Pro3 with HRD/DM780.
Then one day I could not get a connection. Vista and the computer ran fine, device manager showed the drivers as bad and nothing would fix it. The chip maker was no help, after a couple exchanges with tech support they just stopped answering email.
Got it working again by using OEM resuce disk, restoring back to factory specs. I suspect it may have been one of the many Vista service updates that cause the problem but can't say for sure
