Could also be a sign that something is conflicting with the IRQ for your
PCMCIA bridge (often 11)
An unrecognized device much more often gets a timeout message. Rarely
(I think use to be more common??) it may be misrecognized as a memory card
(which then is unresponsive, wonder why :P)
If you have not yet put a card in, and you run
It should state that the slot is empty... not busy.
