PCMCIA to USB adaptor?

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/2-Ports-USB-2...QQcmdZViewItem

Would this sort of thing work on an A1200 using the same software in place for the CF adaptor?

Probably not, but just thought I'd ask

Nope. It's Cardbus which is 32-bit PCI rather than PC-Card which is 16-bit ISA.

There is only one PC-Card 16-bit ISA USB host and that is the Oxford Semiconductor CFU950. I sent some samples to Chris Hodges and Michael Boehmer of E3B a year or two ago together with the source code for the software.

I doubt it will ever make it into an Amiga product

Hi,
A nice idea for sure.

FWIW: I seem to remember a thread on this subject quite a while ago...
...after much googling general consensus was no 16bit -> USB card was ever made. (a shame).

Only the Oxsemi CFU950 which did not come out until late 2006
