PCMCIA USB 3.0 support


Hi there,

I am running Ubuntu on a ThinkPad X220i, it has a PC card slot, I got an USB 3.0 expresscard, so I insert the card to the notebook via a Cardbus to Expresscard adapter. The card doesn't seem to sit in the contacts and the system does not recognize it, which I've an USB hard disk connected to it. I then insert the expresscard alone without adapter, the USB hard disk light is on, but Ubuntu doesn't recognize it, I don't know first, if Ubuntu recognize the card, and secondly whether USB 3.0 is supported, any idea ?

I get the feeling some of the older pcmcia stuff has been removed like cardctrl.

Also some of the cardbus slots are behind a pci to pci bridge and may take a bit more doing. It would be best to test this with an older 32 bit pc card I'd think that is well tested or known to ubuntu.

See at the bottom of this. https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/book/bo...lProblems.html

See where we get.
