PCMCIA Compact Falsh


Robert Reid

I have a compact flash card(128Mb) installed in a PCMCIA
card adapter but Windows 98SE does not seem to configure
a "removable drive" in Windows Explorer.
The "install new hardware" wizard is configured okay but
only recognises that a device has been inserted in the
PCMCIA slot. The help files suggest adding additional
lines to my config.sys file but it also mentions an
additional system file such as MS-flash.sys for example.
How can I get this card correctly configured and working?

If other cards such as LAN, modem etc work on this machine, no need to change config.sys.
Also you don't need MS-flash.sys for modern CF cards.
The card should appear to Windows as PCMCIA IDE controller with a "disk" sitting on it.
It should get a non-shared IRQ and some i/o ports.
So it is either resource conflict or wrong driver. Drivers for some CF memories are in
the drivers directory on win98 CD, or check manufacturer's site.
