Connecting CF Extreme IV through IDE



I am trying to connect CF Extreme IV 2.0 GB card to my AMD Geode LX800 board but it gives a problem about DMA. (dma_timer_expiry: dma_status == 0x61) I connected Toshiba CF 2GB card to the same board and did not get any problem. I wonder what is the difference between these CFs?

Re: Connecting CF Extreme IV through IDE

Well, the Toshiba is probably a PIO card and the Extreme IV is UDMA, so that may be why one of them works and one does not.  I did a Google search, and it appears to be a time out issue that could have several causes.  My recomendation is to run a search for it and do what they suggest.
