NCU works with Win 98, 2000, NT. (I was able to back up some 32 MB cards
with Win98 that never did it with Macs from
Quadra 950 up to G3) Check the connection settings on the Newt (serial,
38..) to be the same as the one used on the PC side.
Another possibility of failures are programs still using your serial port
on the PC (modem, phone, whatever..)
