    My wifes laptop decided that her wireless card should now be recognized as a MTD-0002 device that, of course, doesn't have any drivers. I have tried to re-install the drivers for the wireless card and that doesn't seem to be the problem. I tried to reinstall the PCMCIA device drivers and they seem to be working properly. I can plug in a different PCMCIA device, a card reader for instance, and it works just fine.

    Has this happened to anyone else before?

    If your Win 2000 PC is asking for "PCMCIA MTD-0002" drivers when a PC card is inserted in one of the slots, your PC is missing drivers for the PCMCIA cards. The suggestions in the following page will help you resolve your PC's problems. ( http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q274509& ). A new BIOS upgrade may also resolve the problems.

    Q36. When I insert my Quatech serial pcmcia card into a Compaq Presario 1200-Series Laptop running Windows 2000, Windows claims that "MTD-0002 hardware is detected." What is wrong?

    A. When you insert a PC Card in your Compaq Presario 1200-series laptop computer, you may receive a message that indicates MTD-0002 hardware is detected. Also, an unknown device named "PCMCIA MTD-0002" may appear in Device Manager. This issue can occur because the default Phoenix Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) configuration creates a hardware conflict.

    RESOLUTION
    To resolve this issue, disable the Sound Blaster setting in the Phoenix BIOS, but do not disable Onboard PCI Audio in the Phoenix BIOS. For help with this process, please view the documentation included with your computer, or contact your computer's manufacturer.

    MORE INFORMATION
    The Compaq 1200-series computers require the following drivers that are not included with Windows 2000:

    VIA VT82C686A audio controller driver for MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Microsoft Windows 2000, and Linux.

    How do I prevent my PC from detecting the DWL-500 as a "PCMCIA MTD-0002" device?

    If you have a motherboard which uses the Intel 815EEA chipset and have Windows 2000 installed this issue can be resolved with the latest Intel BIOS upgrade, version P10. Intel has made this upgrade available at http://support.intel.com. After the BIOS is flashed the DWL-500 will be identified correctly thereby allowing its drivers to be found and installed correctly.
