(The part number is F5U222vuk1 )
It works for me:-)
I got mine from PC World a year or two ago.
Tciao for Now!
Be careful, there are CardBus to USB cards that do a fine job, but there
are no PCMCIA to USB cards. If you plug a CardBus only card into
PCMCIA only, it will not work... (CardBus is essentially 'hot swapable
PCI on soft of a PCMCIA interface. It is NOT PCMCIA)
Is your computer PCMCIA or CardBus? While every computer I've
seen with USB were CardBus, that is not a guarantee.
Isn't there also a difference of 32-bit (Cardbus) vs 16-bit (PCMCIA)?
Yes, BIG difference.
PCMCIA is 16 bit. It's pretty much a PC-AT 16 bit bus on a card with
CardBus is essentially "Hot Swapable PCI". In fact, CardBus controllers
appear as PCI bridge devices and the CardBus card appears, in most
cases, EXACTLY as a PCI device does.
MOST CardBus controllers will also was 'as if' they are PCMCIA
socket controllers and will accept PCMCIA cards, with the caveat that
some, but not all, require use of the PCI rotateable interrupts. A
number of early CardBus implementations also supported what was
called 'sideband' interrupts, where they could generate IRQs directly
to the interrupt controller from the socket controller.
