Need Help-- DataChute PCI PCMCIA adaptor and compact flash

Post by Chuck Has » Mon, 24 Sep 2001 21:01:58



I have a digital camera that uses compact flash cards, so I figured
I would go out and get me a PCMCIA adaptor kit for a desktop so
I could pull images directly off of my compactflash cards.

So I obtained the Datachute PCI adaptor, installed it installed all
of the proper modules and fired things up. The adaptor appears to
work just fine with NIC cards, wireless LAN cards, modem and
serial port cards, but when I insert a compactflash card into it
(using the compactflash to PCMCIA adaptor) the machine freezes.
If I pop the card out again after a while the machine starts to respond
and finally you hear two beeps at which point the machine is back
to full speed.

I am trying to figure out what my problem is.

Here is a dump from the message log.

This is a PCI device but it is grabbing  ISA interrupts.  Have any of
you tried to get one of these devices to work on your machine?

Tnx in advanced for your time.
