If you insert a PC Card ATA device and it isn't recognized (no special files are created), use the prtconf command to try to identify the problem.
Run the prtconf -D command to see if your pcata card is recognized.
A recognized device will appear at the end of the prtconf output. For example:
# prtconf -D . . . pcic, instance #0 (driver name: pcic) . . . disk, instance #0
If pcata does not appear in the prtconf output, there is a problem with the PC Card adapter configuration or with the hardware.
Check to see whether the problem is with the card or the adapter by trying to use the card on another machine and by seeing if it works on the same machine using DOS.
For PC Card devices, nodes are created in /devices that include the socket number as one component of a device name that the node refers to. However, the /prtc/dev names and the names in /dev/dsk and /dev/rdsk do follow the current convention for ATA devices, which do not encode the socket number in any part of the name. See the pcata(7D) man page.
If you want to remove the disk, you must unmount the file system.
Use the mkfs_pcfs(1M) command to create a pcfs file system:
|# mkfs -F pcfs /dev/rdsk/c#d#p0:d|
|# mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c#d#p0:c /mnt|
For more information, see the pcfs(7FS) and mount(1M) man pages.
|# newfs /dev/rdsk/c#d#s#|
To mount a ufs file system, type:
|# mount -F ufs /dev/dsk/c#d#s# /mnt|
To create a Solaris partition, run the format command and go to the Partition menu. For more information, see the format(1M) man page.
