Maybe that would help you as well, Woody87.
I'm thinking there are serious driver issues with the TI PCIxx21 cardbus controller.
Let me ask you guys this: When you open hardware "device manager" and look in the list do you see these two items listed seperately:
- PCMCIA adapters
Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Cardbus Controller
- PCMCIA and Flash memory devices
Texas Instruments PCIxx21 Integrated FlashMedia Controller
When I look at the drivers....the first item, "Cardbus Controller" lists the drivers as from MS dated 2001 and the second item, "Integrated FlashMedia Controller" shows the correct TI drivers downloaded and installed from the Sager support website.
I don't fully understand the hardware configuration here. I can't get my Audigy2ZS to work in my PCMCIA slot properly but it works with limited functionality. Disabling the "Integrated FlashMedia Controller" in device manager does not disable my PCMCIA slot and vice versa so there must be two controllers? And why does the PCMCIA "Cardbus Controller" not install the correct drivers?
I suspect the inability to read large memory cards may be related somehow to the bandwidth issues I'm having with my Audigy2 card but it's a guess at this point.
