Default Delkin PCMCIA 32-Bit Compact Flash Adapter

i have just ordered one of these. since it possibly supports the full bandwidth of the cardbus it is supposed to be as fast as a USB 2.0/FW400 reader on a laptop. i have a feeling this is the rebranded ASKA Cardbus 32 SpeedOver card

i'll let you all know in a few days. it would be nice to have one less cable in my bag of tricks.

thanks steve for helping me spend another $50

I'm very interested in your results with this. I'm really unhappy with the speed of the CF PCCard adapter I got. I expected something much faster, as it's hooking directly on to that bus.

got the card today and as i suspected it is the aska cf32a speedover card. it has the original label on it.

using my 1ghz dell laptop w/512MB i transferred 226MB of images to the HD in 32 seconds. i am officially pleased and highly recomend it. you need to confirm that your slots are cardbus 32bit. which any up to date PC laptop has. your milage may vary due to processor speed.

it does what it says it will.

So its a lot more (I paid.... $14 for my slow one) but a lot faster.

My laptop is fairly old, so I don't know what type of PCCard adapter it has. But I'll certainly find out now that it really matters.
