    Does anyone know of a PCMCIA PC Card (ie ISA 16 bit bus NOT 32 bit Cardbus)
    which will provide a USB connection. My rather elderly CTX notebook is
    badly in need of such a connection (USB 1.0 or 1.1) but all I can see
    advertised or available second-hand seems to be for Cardbus enabled

    I seriously doubt you will find a USB card that uses a 16 bit interface. I
    think the cardbus cards will be the only option.

    If you're running win95 on that notebook, forget about USB.

    Thanks for the opinion Thor. I was rather coming to that conclusion with my
    lack of success from searching the web. Will have to keep saving the
    pennies for a replacement notebook (or even better, a tablet).

    It originally ran Windows95 but was upgraded to the first edition of 98. So
    the os should support usb but the concensus seems to be that I'm unlikely to
    find a 16 bit pc card, so no go anyway.
