Feedback Amacom Baby DVD on a Thinkpad 240 

Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
Date: 2000, Feb 14
From: Wasim wasim

Just to update the SUPPORTED.CARDS.

Tried out the Amacom baby DVD drive which comes with an Amacom PCMCIA card connector. This works fine (I guess the Baby CD drive should also work) on 2 separate laptops.

However, on a Thinkpad 240, I have only got it recognised twice. Once as a "OTI-SCYLLA ATAPI CD-ROM" and once as a generic ATAPI CDROM. Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this. With the same memory range, I get varying results.

For the record, the details are - Gateway 2000SOLO: No problems.

Thinkpad240: The machine now runs the 2.2.15 kernel (as from RH6.2 beta) and the associated pcmcia bits (3.1.8). From /var/log/messages some reasonably typical messages:
