It has been my experience with these VME cards that getting them seated 
properly sometimes requires the use of force (something I don't normally 
recommend in the realm of computer hardware).  Buy a small rubber mallet 
and use some firm taps along the length of the card end plate (once 
you've gotten the card in place as far as it will go by hand) to make 
sure everything's in there nice and tight.
