I will check with BBTI on how this is wired up. Like i said 0x40 didn't work for
me, but 0x04 did.. I don't know for sure if I tried 0x00..

The original time came out of a few days of frustration trying to make it work
not a datasheet value.. :)

I will check what the card itself says when I get home.. I am pretty sure it
says Gold3, but might just be on the box I was sent the card in.. (I was sent
it by a friend so its possible it was thrown in the wrong box when it was sent
to me)..
