Can you read the card successfully?

Can you send me a more complete message log on the problem system?
I'm not that familiar with Toshiba laptop lines; how old a box is
this?  There are still unresolved (maybe unresolvable) issues with the
Linux PCMCIA drivers on Toshiba laptops, and while your problem isn't
one I've heard of before, my options are limited because I don't have
adequate specs on the Toshiba bridge chips.

In your BIOS setup menu, there should be an option for configuring the
PCMCIA bridge mode.  You can try flipping that around; there should be
three options: PCIC mode, Auto, and CardBus/16-bit.
