I think I need something called Cardwiz, but I've not been able to find it anywhere.
It's for my Toshiba Satellite Pro 410CDT. I'm just trying to get it to see my Compact Flash card.
Is this on Windows 3.1? This forum post from another site mentions that CF cards should work without drivers. I wasn’t able to get mine working with the CF PCMCIA adapter I have, though.

CompactFlash (CF) is a mass storage device format used in portable electronic devices. The format was first specified and produced by SanDisk in 1994...CF cards can be used directly in a PC Card slot with a plug adapter, used as an ATA (IDE) or PCMCIA storage device with a passive adapter..."
I was initially trying to get my PCMCIA cards working on my Toshiba T4850CT running DOS 6.22, and Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. After a few days, I gave up and installed Windows 95B (OSR 2) instead. PCMCIA slots worked right after install. You will still need the actual drivers for other cards, but some PCMCIA cards like the 3COM 589 series NICs have their drivers included in Windows 95. Once I had the network card working, I stopped trying to get the CF card working.
