    IDE to PCMCIA

    I've searched google and froogle, maybe I'm not using the right terminology??

    Does something like this exist? I'm currently utilizing my PCMCIA card slot on my carpc with the audigy ZS2 PCMCIA card. I have reccently purchased the Sprint unlimited broad band PCMCIA card and would like to be able to use it in the car.

    Else I can just get a USB > PCMCIA reader if this isn't possible.

    if your computer has an open pci slot, you could get a pci to pcmcia controller card. i have never heard of one from ide.

    i am sure if you look around with pci to pcmcia, you will find other (cheaper) options. if you don't have a pci slot open, i think you will have to go with the usb option

    yes, a USB adapter is easy to find....not so sure about an IDE to PCMCIA though....



    Or is that what you were getting at with the 'missed the title' comment?

    I have seen many USB and PCI ones. I have never seen one that connects with IDE. Probably not possible as the IDE is used primarly for drives

    I've seen compact flash > IDE

    what would be different about that when compared to PCMCIA?

    rundell is right, ide is for drives (Integrated Drive Electronics). it's not impossible to write some device drivers and some hardware to do that, but it would be a like using a usb drive through the PS2 port
