Question PCMCIA ATA/IDE card detected but not mounted 

Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
Date: 2000, Feb 04
From: Achim Spangler spangler

* SUSE 6.3
* kernel 2.2.14
* pcmcia 3.1.10
* SunDisk SDP3B-4, ATA DISK drive

If I insert the mentioned ATA disk in my pcmcia 1 slot (network card in slot 0), I hear TWO high beeps (all o.k.). But the msdos filesystem on hde1 is not automatically mounted.

IMPORTANT: Later manually mounting "by hand" ("mount /dev/hde1") allow me to mount and access the drive -> only the automatic mount doesn't work

Gratulation: With an earlier version of kernel and pcmcia I had to remove my network card before inserting the ide card, because all irq's was used. But now pcmcia can use not active used irq (occupied by inactive systems like serial port). ==> THANKS

Looking in /var/log/messages I get the following: -------------------------------------------------

None Just a ide.opts glitch

That should be "*,*,*)".  When the ide.opts script is invoked for the
"whole device", there are only three fields in the ADDRESS variable.
When it later calls ide.opts for each partition, it adds the fourth
(partition) field.
