Can not get old PCMCIA DaqCards 1200 or 700 to work in a new Dell laptop Latitude-D610 with Win XP. The Test Resources error prompt in MAX is “The Device is not responding to the selected base address.” Current NI software on use is: NI-DAQ ver 6.9.3, NI-PAL 1.6.1 and MAX 2.2. Dell uses genuine Microsoft PCMCIA adapers drivers on this laptop. I exhausted most of the discussion threads history associated with this type of anomaly, mostly not conclusive or does not help resolve my issue. I also tried changing the IRQs and the I/O addrs range but of no use. Both cards work flawless in an old Gateway laptop with Win 95 and the same above software. The goal is to replace the laptop without impacting the current data acquisition system sooo… let’s not waste time and recommend migrating to DAQmx or anything else in that path.…..
Thanks for the response. Like I mentioned in my original message, I exhausted most the threads associated with old DAQ cards or 1200 in this case including the link you suggested. I did, however, try a second laptop with some differences. The DIO works but no AIO. I'm not doing any development with
Are you sure the part number is 182868B-01 on the working card? I can find no record of this part number. Could it be 182880B-01? This would be a revision of the DAQCard-1200. If it is 182880B-01 then it is an older revision than the 182880H-01. Neither of these revisions would have been tested with a dual voltage PCMCIA slot so it is hard to tell why one would work and one wouldn’t. Let me know if you have any questions and have a great week end.
The part number is 182858B-01 and it is an earlier revision of the DAQCard-1200 than the 182880H-01. Both take 5 volts. Your laptop should be able to tell that they need 5 volts and give it to them. For some reason the laptop is only detecting the older card as needing 5 volts. I would contact Dell to see if there is a way to force the PCMCIA slot to provide 5 volts if you need to have the 182880H-01 card working in this machine. Let me know if you have any questions. Take care.
