    How to update a Matrix-Reloaded CAM using a notebook - another try

    For those who have problems upgrading an UCAS or MR CI-CAM to MR using
    a notebook or lappie with PCMCIA slot here's something you can try.
    There's no guarantee it will work for everyone though, sorry. Steps:

    1. First Windows own PCMCIA-drivers must be installed.
    2. For all Windows users *except* Windows 2000 users(!):
    go to control-panel -> properties of PCMCIA-controller -> driver ->
    more info. This will list all drivers of the PCMCIA-controller.

    Windows XP users: chose update driver and when asked where to look
    point to the subdirectoy of this package called -> xp_pcmcia and
    install it.

    Windows 98 and 98SE users(Millenium = 98SE, all the same): if your
    chain of drivers(under -> more info) contains a file called cbss.vxd
    then you can close all windows now. Go to "your" subdirectory of this
    package (either -> 98_pcmcia or -> 98SE_pcmcia) and copy the file
    cbss.vxd from that directory to your windowssystem directory
    replacing the original cbss.vxd file. You might rename the old file
    first if you feel unsure.

    Now reboot your machine(XP users shouldn't have to reboot but you
    never know so do it anyway as it's just a matter of seconds).

    Win98(SE/ME) users with no cbss.vxd listed don't have to copy anything
    or to reboot. You should have pccard.vxd listed though, otherwise
    something with your PCMCIA-controller installation is wrong. Try to
    force PCIC-controller- or even general PCMCIA-controller- drivers and
    after installing them do a reboot and go back to 2.

    3. Win98(SE/ME) users: copy the file dvbcam.sys to your system32drivers
    directory *by hand* and reboot your machine again.
    4. All Windows-users now, even those with Windows 2000: insert your UCAS
    or MR CAM into your PCMCIA-slot. When asked for a driver point to the
    dreammagic.inf file in this package. This should install the dvbcam.sys
    file for Windows 2000 and XP users, Win98(SE/ME) users already did copy
    this into the directory where it belongs(3.). You should hear a beep
    now and get a symbol in the system tray. Do not pull the CAM before
    another check: go to control panel -> properties of Smartcard(!) ->
    driver -> more info. The dvbcam.sys driver should now be listed there
    even for those who are running Win98(SE/ME) and there should be no
    exlamation marks anywhere in the control panel, otherwise there's a
    resource conflict with some other device in your system which needs
    to be resolved first as next(that's not part of this readme... ).
    5. Congrats if the dvbcam.sys driver is listed under your "Smartcard"
    You can run the loader_setup_1.3.exe now and install the UCAS package.
    The application is run by clicking the ucas_loader and in the menus
    after inserting your CAM and the beep you chose Settings -> PCMCIA ->
    CAM 0 or 1, leave one PCMCIA slot empty so there's only one choice left
    to select. Now chose your file, the file must be in *.upd-format.
    After hitting "Download Now" do not touch or do anything else - first
    it will go very quick and then slow again as if nothing is happening
    at all. This is because the new software is first written to the CAM's
    RAM and afterwards it's flashed too EEProm which takes a while - again
    do not touch during this Only if it finally tells you to remove the
    CAM then do it and reinsert. You'll hear an immediate beep again but
    the CAM is *NOT* yet fully intialized(again) so do *NOT* touch it!
    Wait for at least 30 seconds, after this you can remove your CAM(and
    close the ucas_loader) and your CAM should be working already now.
    No need to initialize again inside a receiver.

    If it doesn't work start over again. You can't do anything wrong once
    the driver is loaded and you get the beep. Also the software-loader
    inside the CAM won't be overwritten or damaged if it's already there.

    Now good luck and keep trying, it's easy once you get the hang of it
    and get the files from here
