Summary MESS-specific 07179: aes: Memory Card doesn't work
Description Memory Card doesn't work o Neo Geo AES System. I create a new blank Memory Card and plug into system, but, when i going to the Bios Memory Card Manager (Hold A+B+C+D on boot), I see the message "Press A button after plugging the card in". But the Memory Card is plugged.

I try to use another Memory Card than i created in another version of Mame (I don't remember a version) and doesn't work too.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Information In Neo Geo CDZ, i see a similiar message "plug the card". But Neo Geo CD/CDZ console doesn't use Memory Cards, it use NVRAM, so impossible to save too.

I do another test, but with the Neo Geo MVS System. I plug the Memory Card into System and work, i can save/load my position into Memory Card in a Arcade Version of the game, But can't do that in a Console Version.

I tried in a diferent games of the consoles and diferent bios but i have the same result

Can you try before/after https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/2c7e42261a60de2fa4acf276d837034fd03bd7c9 and see if that's the point where AES memory cards stopped working?

Fixed in https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/1dd575ff2e385e0f267b78a9a3e77b1ce0a560a9. Bitfields weren't being masked properly when combined.

AES memory card detection is fixed. NeoGeo CD consoles have internal SRAM rather than memory card slots, so whether they work or not is a different issue.
