PCMCIA 250ZIP DRIVE

I’m a new user of QNX4. I’m putting toguether a laptop with QNX with a
Zip250 pcmcia/usb. I tried to install a pcmcia/zip drive and It just dosent
work.

I first use “pcmciatrap start” I check using the “pin” command and I get.
Sock Win Type Flags PID Base Size
IRQ Base Size DMA
1 Unknown C–MMF------ None
2 Empty ----MF-------- None

I tried using “Fsys.eide” command and “Fsys.ata”, but nothing new was added
to my /dev directory. I then try “Dosfsys &” and the only device adopted as
a Dos drive was my floppy “/dos/a”.

I’ll be very thanksful for some help.

I guess this must be a CardBus card and we don’t support any CardBus cards
under QNX4.

Ok, first of all Card Bus Cards are supported to some degree.

Why are you using “pin” for a USB drive? “pin” is for pcmcia
devices, not USB devices. There is some beta USB support,
but I don’t know if includes removable disk drives.

Hugh,

Some time ago I had a problem with card. I got some
help from QSSL and was told that the problem was because of
something being “CardBus”. I was sent a new PCMCIA
administrator which fixed the problem. Does that mean
I had a CardBus interface chip, and that QSSL didn’t support
it, but with the upgrade they now support the CardBus chip
for PCMCIA only?

No, CardBus cards are not supported at all under QNX4!

The QNX 4 Pcmcia.generic supports some CardBus controller chips
but not CardBus cards. ie. it only supports 16-bit PCMCIA cards.
Hope this clears it up.

Thanks Hugh,

I have a Toshiba laptop with a cardbus controller and it DOES seem to work.
But I have never gotten a card to work in it under QNX4.

This having been said, is there a PCMCIA card that WILL support the ZIP
250’s in a CardBus slot?

If you have a SCSI ZIP drive, you can use the Adaptec SCSI PCMCIA adapter
which is supported under QNX4.

Iomega also sells a PCMCIA SCSI card, which the last time I looked
was the Adaptec card. I believe Fsys.aha2scsi was the correct
driver.
