Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

According to the Amiga folks, there was that CFU950 chip for 16-Bit PCMCIA, but actual cards using it became very rare. 🙁 https://www.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/pdf/188079/OXFORD/OXCFU950_07.html Maybe using Compact Flash cards is an alternative. They are kind of pin compatible to PCMCIA, but …

Re: Do those exist at all: Serial-to-USB / Parallel-to-USB / SCSI-to-USB / PCMCIA (Type I or II) to USB adapters ?

The HP200LX seems to have a PCMCIA slot, so it might be possible to install an USB PCMCIA card. Together with matching drivers (PCMCIA card services or PC Card services etc) it might run on the 200LX. That being said, it's not too easy to find something on the web. Google nolonger obeys the …

Just to update this thread, the Thinkpad 755CD I thought I had bought turned out to be a 755CX with Pentium 75. Apart from the lack of CD-ROM, I’m pretty happy with it. Love the chunky design, form factor, keyboard hinge and once I get my CF card reader PCMCIA I should be able to do much more with …

Re: PCMCIA Sound Cards

For anyone who wants to use a PCMCIA card like the Roland above, you can also use them in desktop PCs, via a PCMCIA-PCI adapter card. They don't really manufacture them anymore, but there are a lot of them out there in the wild of the online resellers. Slightly incorrect but know what you mean. PCI …
