    CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    Hi again, I just disabled "onboard SATA&IDE" on BIOS, which was like turning off Jmicron driver, and now i got these messages: AppleYukon - Failed to get ACPI device AppleYukon - TWSI - transfer does not complete. The system doesnt boot again. Any idea on what could be causing this?
  3. Hi, I managed to deactivate Jmicron from BIOS (it was hidden under a different name), so now i only have the AppleYukon TWSI error. What exactly is this problem related to? Thanks!
  4. Hi, I´ve tried Kalyway and now Leo4all 10.5.2 and same history is repeating. The system boots and apparently everything works except a pcmcia soundcard which i have pluged into a PCMCIAtoPCI adaptor to one of my PCI slots on the Gygabite DS4. When i install the drivers for the PCMCIAtoPCI adaptor i cant get anymore to Macos and i can see a JmicronATA error on screen (unknown device). I have to say that before i tried to install the adapter i could see all of my HDs and Pioneer DVD VDr-109 on the desktop, they were apparently propely recognized. I also have a "AppleYukkon error - TWSI transfer does not complete". This is with Leo4all, i think with Kalyway i didnt get this message. I am pretty sure the drivers for the PCMCIA to PCI adapter work (and in fact i got a green light on my audio interface telling me the comunication with the computer is OK), but something clashes with JmicronATA and makes the system unbootable. Anybody have any idea on what could be happening? (BTW i cant get again to the system even with -s on startup options ). This is a pic of my screen: Thanks a lot!

    CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    Hello all, As we are many people here having troubles with our hardware and Cun-nan is a human being (as far as i know ), i think i have decided to forget about my non-working PCMCIA to PCI adapter and buy another one which works properly. After all, it should be quite cheap. Which one do you think its a safe bet? is there any model-chipset that gets recognized by Leopard even without the great Chun-nan´s drivers? Sorry to hijack the thread like this but i thought i could get answers from many experienced users here. thanks a lot.

    Hi Cun-nan, thanks for the reply. Now i got a different report. I only see something PC related at the top line. Tell me please if you need more specs about my computer, HDs configuration or whatever. Thanks again! you rock!

    PCMCIA to PCI adapter using Kalyway 10.5.2

    Ok, letme check if i understood right. I should replace my IOPCIFamily.kext at /System/Library/Extensions/ by the one you posted here (patched) then clear extensions caché. How do i clear extensions cache?

    CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    **EDIT: After a new fresh install i tried to install the Kext v8 package instead of mpkg. I installed the Kexts with Kext helper. Now i can see something being recognized when booting with -v, but i still cant get into the system, or if i do, it freezes quickly after some browsing. I took this 2 pics in 2 different boots: Also i am a bit confused on this part of the first topic: [iMPORTANT] If you get the kernel panic, PLEASE check if you have replaced the following files to make your cardbus slot working before: AppleACPIPlatform AppleAPIC IOACPIFamily Where am i supposed to find these files so that i can overwrite my old ones? Thanks!

    PCMCIA to PCI adapter using Kalyway 10.5.2

    Thank you slice for pointing me to the right direction. I see there´s no nfo or txt in that zip explaining how to install these drivers. As i am very new to the Macos environment i feel quite lost on how to procced. Would you mind telling me which steps should i follow to get a proper installation? Also i see in your sig: PCCard Ricoh 5C475 works with IOPCIFamily.kext 2.4.4 OSX 10.4.6 only. My card shows in windows as: Ricoh R/RL/ET/RC/5C475(II),R5C20 or compatible.... Does this means i will not be able to install it on my 10.5.2? Thanks a lot!

    CardBus/PCMCIA PC Cards for Leopard

    Hi Chan-nun and everybody here! I have just installed Kaliway 10.5.2 with vanilla Kernel on my DS4 and everythng was ready to go except my soundcard, which consist of a PCMCIA plug into a PCMCIA-PCI adapter. After installing PCCard.10.5.2.beta3.mpkg.zip i cant get into Macos again. It stays in the white screen with the Apple and the loading icon turning forever. This was my first attempt to install my PCMCIAtoPCI adapter: Ricoh R/RL/ET/RC/5C475(II),R5C20 or compatible ---> thats what it shows in the device manager on windows XP, the brand i am not sure, i think its Buffalo (tell me if you need it please) Anybody got an idea about what could be happening? Was i supposed to install first the PCCard.10.5.2.beta3.kext.zip? Sorry but i couldnt get it clear by the explanation at the beginning of this post. I am really new to all of this so i got pretty lost. Even if i cant make the adapter work..is there an easy way to restore my system? can i just enter in safe mode like windows or something similar to fix whatever the installer broke? Thanks in advance for your work and tips...awesome 32 support pages!!
  11. Hello! I have a PCMCIA card which i want to use with Leopard on a Gigabyte DS4 mobo. I already had this running ona PC with a Buffalo PCMCIAtoPCI adapter. In Windows i didnt have to do nothing at all, the adpater was recognized by the OS and i just had to plug in my pcmcia card, it worked flawlessly. Its a PCMCIA sound card, BTW. This seems not to work on Leo 10.5.2 (Kalyway install). I searched for drivers for this adaptor but i cant find any. Should i use any other driver for another product which has the same chipset? If so, how could i check which chipset is using my Buffalo PCMCIAtoPCI? I couldnt find any info on this either. Thanks a lot and congrats for the forum...its huge!!
