    PCI - PC Card Adapter

    Just a quick question - will any PCCard/PCMCIA Card work in a PCI adapter/converter??

    Or is there a USB to PC-Card converter??? so I can connect a PCCard to a USB Port???

    Cheers

    I've looked for a while for the USB to PCMICA converter but from what I've read it's not possible because USB it too slow to emulate the PCMCIA bus.

    USB 1 is... USB 2 should be fine.

    Cheeky %$£"%$" - this is a year old! I did google at the time and it found nothing. At least I wasn't asking which PSU, VGA Card etc ... It was a 'different' noob question!
