PCCARD w/o dev id ..

I have something that appears to be a battery buffered SRAM card
with the pccard connector, but it isn't a "real" pccard at all.
The card contained the firmware of a density measuring device until the
dvice was disconnected from the power long time afer the battery died.
Changing the battery is no problem, but I need to read another card
and put the firmware data on the currently empty one. Luckily the cards
have a small switch to set the R/O.
I have an ol Toshiba Sattelite with 9.1-Release on it. I've set
hw.cbb.debug to 1 und when I insert the card I get this:
I've set the hw.cbb.start_memory to 0xd0000000 too, bu this makes no
difference at all.
# sysctl hw.cbb

Nov 7 17:32:31 toshi kernel: pccard0: Card has no functions!
Nov 7 17:32:31 toshi kernel: cbb0: PC Card card activation failed
The question is now how I can map the card memory to somewhere to access
the data and make a copy of the firmware?
