None IDE drive addition failure 

Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
Date: 2000, Feb 18
From: zvi zvi

I am trying to use an IDE disk drive on a desktop machine. The
pcmcia card reader is by ActionTec - PC700:

Interface:              16-bit ISA
Chipset:                Vadem VG-469
Configuration Modes:    Plug-N-Play compatible

The disk drive, in the sample data below, is an IDE disk drive by
Integral Peripherals - Viper 340. But I have tried also a drive
by Calluna (520Mb) that failed similarly.

The PC is running SuSE 6.2.

(Both drives work well in a laptop running windows 98 and the
 card reader works fine under windows 98)


Following is various data I hope will give some clues as
to the problem.

Last comment, the Viper drive works every now an then (one in 50 insertions`
after a reboot)...


Thanks in advance

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 8963.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Command (m for help): p
