PCMCIA FlashDisk and Win2k Desktops

By Sir Percard ·
We have a user that needs to load files onto a PCMCIA ATA Flashcard. He has a PC Card reader installed in his desktop. The card reader recognizes the card, loads the driver for the controller, but it does not show a drive letter in My Computer. We put the same card into a laptop and it recognizes and operates fine. I figure that the problem lies in the fact that the system is already operating three IDE devices (hard drive, CD-ROM, and ZIP-250) from the two on board channels (primary and secondary IDE) How do I make Windows 2000 recognize the card in the desktop. Other PC Cards work fine (modem, NIC).

I don't know think having the 3 devices already on this system should be a problem, since you still have one device available. Have you tried removing all the other devices but the hard drive. If the device works without these other devices, then try changing where the other devices are on the IDE cable.
Have you check with the manufacurer's Web site, others may have had this problem, and there might be a fix for it there.
