I have an old Acer Travelmate 630 (made in 2002) that doesn't have USB2 ports, only 2 usb1 ports.
Therefore I got a pcmia card (also several yers ago, around 2004/2005) that have 2 USB2 ports and 2 FW ports. Problem is - when I plug in any USB pen drives to the usb2 port of the pcmia card, it is not detected.
It doesn't matter if I insert the pcmia card before boot, or if I plug it in while Bodhi is running, same result.
Is this possible to fix ?
I'm not sure about the brand and model number of the PCMIA card is, I'm still a novice about Linux commands, but the lshw -businfo say this:

At the time the command was executed, the PCMIA card was mounted, but no usb pen drive plugged into it. And I use an old 4 port USB1 hub to reduce wear on the computers two only usb ports.
I realized that I should had the usb pen drive connected to the PCMIA card in the first place. Well, the USB@6 have to be the USB port on the pcmia card, so here I go moving the usb drive to that usb port:
sprinterdriver@TravelMate:~$ sudo lshw -businfo | grep 'usb@6' -A1 -B2 usb@5 usb5 bus OHCI PCI host controller pci@0000:02:00.3 bus USB 2.0 Controller usb@6 usb6 bus EHCI Host Controller usb@6:2 storage DataTraveler 112 pci@0000:02:00.4 bus M5253 P1394 OHCI 1.1 Controller
What is weird is that it looks like OS can see the usb drive, but it cannot mount it automatically, and I don't know how to mount it manually - if possible.
