PCMCIA Cardbus not Powered

I've completed installing JaS 10.4.8 on my Gateway MX6920 (1.6GHz Core Duo, 1GB RAM, GMA950, 3495ABG). Knowing that the Intel 3495ABG is not supported and the driver won't do anything productive, I dug up my old Belkin F5D7010 version 1315 PCMCIA card and plugged it in. Lo and behold, no lights flashed; not even the power light.


The lack of a power light led me to believe that the driver/kext for the PCMCIA bus was not properly functioning. I looked around on the forums, and found a fix that involved replacing the IOPCCardFamily.kext. Somehow, I didn't have one to replace (which was odd in itself). So I just copied the downloaded kext into /System/Library/Extensions/, deleted the two Extensions.* files, and rebooted.


Nothing doing.


I know that my PCMCIA card is supported (or I know that others have it working, at least). What's going on, and how can I fix it?
