    I need a way to use a PCMCIA device on my desktop machine. I have seen adapters on ebay but they always use an ISA slot. My desktops only have PCI these days. Also I prefer to have something that will work with XP.
    Thanks, Don

    I know what you mean and I don't think I have seen an PCI version yet. If you are in the UK, I can point you to a company who can get that (special order) but anywhere else I will need to research.

    Just out of curiosity, what device are you looking to add onto your machine?

    You can get them. Look for PCI Cardbus on Google. I found one for 99 USD.
    I can get them from Germany try www.tragant.de they do them a lot cheaper.

    Actually in the EC, you won't need to pay tax on your product since the item. If you decide to buy from the EC (European Community) then don't forget to get the company to fill out the forms or make it tax exempt. (UK tax is 17.5%!!!)

    Thanks for all your replies. I have ordered a cardbus reader here in the U.S. so...I should be all set.

    This has recently changed. European Legislation has been brought in that forces companies to charge for VAT (at the rate in the country of sale) as well as pay VAT on imports (not new)
