Re: Wireless PCMCIA Card for Toshiba Portege 7200CTe (W98SE)
card. They do not alter the electrical specifications.
Sure, the standards have changed over time to support more
functionality. But from our point of view (end user), there are only
two electrical specifications, 16-bit and 32-bit (Cardbus) (as I noted
earlier, architecturally, 16-bit PC cards are ISA cards and 32-bit cards
are PCI cards). Normally, devices that take 32-bit (Cardbus) cards are
backwards compatible, and the 16-bit sockets are not supposed to (and
normally will not) accept a 32-bit card (the card physically cannot be
inserted, the socket is keyed). So there should not be a risk of
blowing anything up, but occasionally someone won't follow the standards.
The PCMCIA organization no longer calls ANY PC Card a PCMCIA card and
has not for more than a decade. And Cardbus cards are also still PC
Cards (e.g. Cardbus is a subset of PC Card).
