Thanks for the support Mark.

I found what the problem was: this card has an external bay with analog
I/Os, and it was not connected when I tried to install the card.
I think you need to connect it in order to have the card properly
recognized: in fact simply connecting the bay leads to proper installation.

Quite strange!
