View Full Version : Sandisk compactflash pcmcia reader

OK, have an odd issue going on here.

Have a pcmcia card that worked fine in FC1 and RH8.1 and 9. However, when I insert the card in FC2-test2, I get nothing. I used to get status info in the messages file about it loading modules and setting up the drive as hdc.
Now, no message at all shows up on the messages file, or in dmesg.

Other cards work just fine, using a pcmcia nic to write this very message.
`cardctl status` properly shows it being installed in socket 1:
Socket 1:
3.3V 16-bit PC Card
function 0: [ready]

"cardctl ident 1" reports:
product info: "SAMSUNG", "Rev 1.15", ""
manfid: 0x00ce, 0x0000
function: 4 (fixed disk)

Seems to be working fine, obviously a driver issue somewhere down the line...

So what's changed? Anyone have any insight on this problem?

Solved my problem...

Manually added an entry to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and it's working fine now.
