What are the chances they put a PCMCIA slot back in any new macbooks? It's the one thing preventing me from getting one. I need the slot for my camera's memory card.
that is more than cool! whoever engineered that deserves a cookie!vga4life said:Since cameras and my phone use SD cards, I've switched to the Sandisk Ultra II SD+USB cards. No need for a separate reader, as the SD card itself folds in half to become a tiny USB drive.
I believe a PCMCIA to ExpressCard adapter is possible, and that someone is developing it. I forget who.Silentwave said:Too bad there aren't readers for them. PCMCIA is going the way of the dodo now. Everything is headed for ExpressCard (the PCIe card slot)
http://www.p2info.net/p2faq.phpQ What is the Panasonic AJ-PCD10 Drive?
A The AJ-PCD10 is best described as a P2 card reader and writer which may be installed into a 5-inch bay on a desktop PC and used as an internal drive. With an AC adaptor and USB cable, it may also be used as a stand-alone external drive. The AJ-PCD10 can function as an external drive with a laptop PC. Its five PC card slots let you mount up to five P2 cards at the same time. There's a USB 2.0 interface for transferring data at high speeds. You can edit directly onto a P2 card with nonlinear editing software and quickly upload files to a server or copying onto a hard drive.
Yeah I know...it has 5 slots...which I don't need and costs like $2000. Also, I think it needs to be powered.balamw said:

What? You mean, like I could plug a PCMCIA Card in to my MacBook? So I could use the Vodafone 3G card? Have you got links/prices?balamw said:I saw a few single slot USB2.0 to PCMCIA adapters. Would one of those work?
hope you're going to get an MBP then, as the MB doesn't have an ExpressCard slot...JesterJJZ said:Here we go!
I don't think it's out yet or how much. I need one of these before I can get a new Macbook.
