Question Problems with PCI to PCMCIA Adpater 

Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues

From: Nicolas Malsch nick

Hi guys,

I have a couple of issues with PCMCIA related stuff. One of them is urgent and about the PCMCIA Adapter. The Adapter is from Quatech. It is a PCD2-F/PCI. The configuration of the Card drive seems to be PCI bridge probe:

Ricoh RL5C476 found, 2 sockets.fine. 'probe' gives:

I am running RedHat 6.2 on a Dell Dimension XPS T600r. I upgraded from RedHat 6.1 a couple of weeks ago.

The problems start when I insert cards. It is not like he doesn't recognize them. Linux actually configures them properly but it takes a realy long time and I get some funky error messages in the /var/log/messages files:

When I insert a SunDisk 10 MB compact flash card, i get the following messages...

I don't really know what is going on. It seems to "send a packet and them time out". I would appreciate help on that issue. Perhaps some explanation on the PCIC_OPTS with regards to PCI. If you need more info, feel free to ask.

Cheers, Nick
