Again: Writing DER certificates to ZeitControl Cards

I asked this Question a while ago, but unfortunately didn't get any
response. So, I ask again and I'm in hope that somebody here knows any
Answer to this. I just want to know if the cards do not support it, or
is somebething wrong with my setup?

I'm trying to import certificates in DER format to Zeitcontrol OpenPGP-
Cards (v2.1 and v3.3) and get this error message:

gpg/card> writecert 3 < cert.der
gpg: error writing certificate to card: Kartenfehler

The last word says "card error".

Are these cards not capable of getting certs written on, or am I
missing something?

The Admin-Pin is correct, so this could not be the problem.

By the way, I'm using a ReinerSCT CyberJack RFID standard via PCSCd.
Anything works well, except of writing x509 certificates in DER format
to the card.
