A couple things:

- try "dump_cis -f".  This skips some sanity checks, and might tell
  you if the card has a CIS that is malformed.

- check that the card is powered up at the right voltage, and is
  reporting "ready".

- it might help to plug the card into a CF adapter in a laptop, to
  find out what the CIS should look like.  You can also check card
  voltage etc that way.
