It would be _very_ helpful if you could load the pd driver with

        insmod pd verbose=1

and report the kernel log messages. You can retrieve those messages
with the 'dmesg' command.

Which mode is the port set to ?

Try loading the driver in mode 2 rather than mode 4, does that make
any difference ?

Whatever, we need to see the verbose log messages.
