I am having an impossible time getting the Sony v505 pcmcia slot to work properly with the GC83 card. I have tried everything with the cingular support team. Are there known issues with the pcmcia on the Sony v505. I am at the point of giving up and thinking it must be time to get a new laptop. I do love my v505 due to the extra capacity battery. Sony seems to think that it could be a bad slot. Other computer people think that it could be a bad driver. I have tried the driver issues and found everything to be fine. I have run "RegistryFix" and all is fine there. Any thoughts out there.
