|SUBJECT ||Subject: [hangout] PCMCIA SmartMedia Card Adapter
Today's project is getting my pcmcia smartmedia adapter recognized and
mounted. I was able to do this a few years ago on my old Toshiba laptop.
That's far away in storage and I can't figure out how to do it again.
I do have my kernal configured correctly for PCMCIA and have cardmgr
running at start up. I know this because I use a PCMCIA modem. I get the
two high pitched beeps when I plug it in.
When I plug in the smartmedia adapter I get one high pitch beep and one
low pitch. According to PCMCIA documentaion it means that a card was
inserted and recognized as a pcmcia card but not configured properly.
card "eFilm SmartMedia Adapter"
version "Delkin Devices", "SmartMedia PC Card Adapter"
bind "memory_cs", "ftl_cs"
to /etc/pcmcia/config, shutdown cardmgr and then restarted it.
The results were the same.
The card was recognized and mounted fine on my old laptop and works fine
when I boot into Mac OS.
