I have a Thinkpad T42p, and the PCMCIA card has worked on all releases of OS X (.1, .3, .4) until I upgraded to 10.4.5. Now when I start up I see:

IOPCCardBridge::start failed
IOPCCard notice: AdjustResourceInfo: Unknown error code 0xffffffff
IOPCCardBridge::start failed

Before I upgraded to 10.4.5 (when it was working) it said:

IOPCCard info: Intel PCIC probe: TI 4520 rev 01
IOPCCard info: Intel PCIC probe: , TI 4520 rev 01
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 3): vendor 0x1814, device 0x0201
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 3): found 1 functions
IOCardBusDevice: binding socket 0 function 0 to card services.
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_config(bus 3)
IOPCCard info: fn 0 bar 1: mem 0xa0002000-0xa0003fff
IOPCCard info: irq 11

I tried swapping out the 10.4.4 and 10.4.3 IOPCCardFamily.kext and rerunning the kextcache commands, but that did not help. The main reason I would like this to work is because I'm using a Belkin RT2500 card for wireless, which up to this point, has worked well for me. When I run the device application it say "No device", verifying the PCCard isn't being recognized. In 10.4.4 and before, IOPCCardBridge started up fine.

For giggles, I renamed my backup of 10.4.4 extensions to Extensions and at reboot the IOPCCard detected everything correctly... so something in my extensions directory (or a combination of things) have changed to prevent this from working. As I said before, I already swapped IOPCCardFamily, is there more to change?

What has changed from 10.4.4 to 10.4.5 to where my PCMCIA slot doesn't work anymore? Thanks for any help.

Just wanted to update that I fixed this! Even though in my little brain it makes sense to replace IOPCCardFamily.kext since my problem was with the PC Card, I needed to replace IOPCIFamily.kext instead. So I put back the original 10.4.5 IOPCCardFamily.kext, and replaced the existing 10.4.5 IOPCIFamily.kext (version 1.9) with my older 10.4.4 one (version 1.8). Rebooted into single user mode (-s) and ran:

kextcache -e -z -a i386
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions -z -a i386

Typed reboot and *POOF* at start up it recognized my PCMCIA slot and card correctly. I hope this information helps someone!
Good luck.

Umm... guys... if your PCCard's chipset ain't TI (Texas Instrument), none of this is gonna work.

The OP said that it *was* working and then broke when he updated his system.

Good luck.

Really wanted to get my PCMCIA to work... now I've downloaded the 10.4.4 installation ISO and burned to a DVD... I can't seems to find the IOPCIFamily.kext anywhere within the disc~!... Can someone enlighten me or direct me somewhere?...

Or... should any of you still have the IOPCIFamily.kext (1.8) from 10.4.4, could you drop me an attachment to ross . chang @ gmail . com [Remove Space]... thanks a mil

:robot: see attachment at the bottom of this posting. Thanks, Jeva Hose, for solving this riddle.

Anybody with TI (Texas Instrument) PCMCIA card controllers which do still not get recognized by your Mac OS x86 install you can visit this thread and will most likely get it working !

Cheers,
Bugs.
