Why is my Cisco WIC card/ serial port not showing?

I have a Cisco 1841 configured, working (serial interface up) and I was about to put into production. It had a WIC-1DSU-T1 card installed in slot 0. Another router WIC gave out during a lighting storm so I removed the WIC out of the none production router to repair the production T1 circuit. I purchased another WIC card and installed into the non-production 1841 and now the WIC is not recognized and the config does not have a serial port in the config any more. I have tried more than one new WIC but without any change. Has anybody seen this before? I have my suspicsions as to what is wrong but would like some other thoughts.
Thanks

Is this WIC by chance the WIC-1DSU-T1 - the older "version 1" WIC? That card is not supported on the 1841. The newer "version 2" card, Cisco part #WIC-1DSU-T1-V2 is supported.

  Look in the "Modular Support" section of the 1841 info page:
