mtd-0002 error

TI 1520 card reader works fine with 256 MB PCMCIA cards. I can boot with the card in reader and the drive shows up in My computer correctly as a removable disk. Running XP Pro with Service Pack 3. Device Manager shows two "Texas Instruments PCI-1520 CardBus Controller" entries.

But there is a problem with 2 GB PCMCIA cards. On a cold reboot, there is a MTD-0002 error and the card is not recognized. Device Manager shows "PCMCIA MTD-0002". Device Manager also shows the two "Texas Instruments PCI-1520 CardBus Controller" entries. Ejecting the card makes the "PCMCIA MTD-0002" disappear from Device Manager and reinserting allows the card to be properly recognized as a removable disk. After doing a warm restart, the card is still properly recognized as a remoovable disk. A cold reboot is thee only time when the problem occurs. This is on a remote PC so ejecting and reinserting the card on a cold reboot is not practical.

Hi rarhodes,
If you receive an MTD-0002 error or other unknown PC Card issue it means that the BIOS is unable to allocate the required memory resources for the card.
A mis-mapping has occurred causing the PC Card to be mis-detected. A Basic Input Output System (BIOS) upgrade that addresses this issue will be required from the OEM/Computer manufacturer.
Contact the manufacturer to obtain the same.

NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can resolved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.
