I'm trying to get a USB 2.0 CardBus (PCMCIA) card to work. The power is working, I'm just stuck on the data... Nothing is recognized it seems.

[11.04 on a Lenovo R500]

Any ideas anyone?

Abuse of USB may damage the cardbus. Some notebook has lower voltage, not engough to support delivery

An externally powered HDD should be not be a problem, I'd guess...?
