imx23evk eeprom access problem

I'm working with imx23evk and need to access to eeprom. I connect a NFC memory: M24LR04E


To memory access I'm use I2C protocol and change mx23evk.c with this options:


static struct at24_platform_data eeprom_platdata = {

    .byte_len = 512,

    .page_size = 4,

    .flags = AT24_FLAG_ADDR16,



static struct i2c_board_info eeprom_i2c_device[] = {


        I2C_BOARD_INFO("at24", 0x53), /* E0=0, E1=0, E2=0 */

        .platform_data = &eeprom_platdata,




static void i2c_device_init(void)


    i2c_register_board_info(0, &eeprom_i2c_device, 1);




When update the firmware and reboot imx233 appear a new directory:

root@freescale /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0053$ ls

bus        eeprom     name       subsystem

driver     modalias   power      uevent


But, when I try to access to memory, show this errors:


root@freescale /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0053$ i2cget 0 0x53

Error: Could not set address to 0x53: Device or resource busy



root@freescale /sys/class/i2c-adapter/i2c-0/0-0053$ hexdump eeprom

hexdump: eeprom: Remote I/O error


Why appear this error?. Is wrong configuration?. Any idea?
