On which platform you are using the flexcop-driver? PPC or (normal) PC? 
Most likely your card is broken. To be sure that it is not a driver 
problem, you should try it in windows.

That there is not frontend found (and thus a lot of i2c-errors) also 
indicates that the card is broken.

I'm sorry,
Patrick.
