PCMCIA MTD-0002 errors

I?m using Gateway 400sd4 laptop running with Windows XP SP2 with all drivers loaded. The problem am facing is whenever I insert pcmcia device in this laptop?s slot, it is getting detected as mtd-0002 device. Though I get the message saying ?new device found?, windows fails to install its drivers. PCMCIA.sys info is version 5.1.2600.2180. I tried searching various forums and websites but dint got anything working. Is anyone here helping me with this? Many thanks.

According to the situation it indicates that though pcmcia.sys recognizes the device it is unable to read the attribute info from the card. But before we could go with hardcore troubleshooting you should try using any other card with this laptop and this card with some another computer and see if it works fine.

RE: PCMCIA MTD-0002 errors

Thank you very much for the help MikeY007. According to your suggestion I've done both. This card works fine in other machines and another card has
the same result in this machine.

What now? Please help.

I had exactly the same problem with a Presario 2100 laptop and my wireless card. I had to eject and plug back the card everytime I booted into Windows XP.

I searched in google day and night for a solution with no avail.

I figured out that if you disable/enable the O2Micro Controller under "PCMCIA adapters" on the device manager, it also works. So I found a way to do this automatically =)

So...this is not really a fix but rather a workaround (but it works!)

1. First make sure you have installed the PCMCIA drivers. They didn't install automatically when I re-installed Windows.
2. You can download them from here
3. Extract the download file, run the setup.exe file and restart
4. Download DevCon package from Microsoft.com by clicking here and extract the package and copy the appropriate version (file in I386 folder for 32 bit Windows or file in Ia64 folder for 64 bit windows) to the C:\windows\system32\ folder.
7. Click start and right click on ?My Computer? and select ?Properties?.
8. Click the ?Hardware? tab at the top.
9. Click on the ?Device Manager? button.
10. Click on "PCMCIA adapters"
11. Right click on "O2Micro Controller" and Select "Propierties".
12. Click the "Details" tab at the top.
13. Look in for the device name of the O2Micro Controller, for example
In the above line the device instance ID is "DEV_6972"
14. Right click on your desktop
15. Click on new -> Text document
16. Open the new document
17. Write the following (Replace the Dev Id with your Dev id if neccesary):

@echo off
c:\windows\system32\devcon disable *DEV_6972*
c:\windows\system32\devcon enable *DEV_6972*

18. Click on "File" -> "Save as"
19. Under "File name" write restart.bat and click on save
20. Now you will have an icon on your desktop named restart. You can click it everytime you reboot, or you can drag it to "Start" -> "All programs" -> "Startup". And it will run automatically each time you boot into Windows.

Hope it helps!!

Re: PCMCIA MTD-0002 errors

I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 using a Sierra Wirless 875 AirCard. Until a recent automatic update that included Bios, it worked fine. Now it refuses to detect the aircard. Diagnosis indicates a lack of driver for PCMCIA MTD-0002 (?). Also NEC PMI Host Controller conflicts with USB ports. I have contacted Dell, out of warranty, no support. I have contacted AT&T and Sierre Wireless, same results or out of their expertise. Downloaded Driver Det. which indicated several drivers (PCMCIA/NEC PMI) not updated...updated with no avail. Any suggestions
