I saw a USB to ExpressCard (universal slot) converter which sounds just like what I need, but the documentation says that "only supports USB-based ExpressCards, not PCI Express-based"

How do I know if my ExpressCard is USB or PCI based? It's a Huawei E800, a wireless connection card that uses a SIM card like the ones in GSM phones. I couldn't find anything on the Huawei site.

Hi there,

It sounds like that documentation might have been translated. Haha. it seems that what they meant was that the Express Card you plug in will be detected as a USB device, which may or may not cause problems with programs that will use it. Also, that means that the card cannot be used outside of Windows, such as in DOS or for booting purposes.

Hope this helps.
