Thanks to all who attempted to help. Digital Tech Support got back to me
with the following information... The Kingston 256MB CompactFlash memory
card in conjunction with the Compaq Armada M700 Computer is not compatible
with the Digital Camera Compact flash Card reader/Writer. There is a
conflict with the internal chipsets. You should return the device for a
refund. We are sorry but it will not work...

Unplug all other USB devices and make sure the laptop is on ac power not the
battery.

It happens, a scandisk cruzer mini 256meg won't work on a PS2; just
about anything else will.
