PCMCIA USB for a Wallstreet? - Mac Portable

Hello everyone. I have a Wallstreet at work and it looks like I won't be upgraded for a long time :( I'd like to get a USB PCMCIA card for it. Can I just buy any old card on ebay (cheap!) or do I need a special Mac compatable card? I'm running 9.1. Thanks, MK...

    Default PCMCIA USB for a Wallstreet?


    Hello everyone. I have a Wallstreet at work and it looks like I won't
    be upgraded for a long time :( I'd like to get a USB PCMCIA card for it.
    Can I just buy any old card on ebay (cheap!) or do I need a special Mac
    compatable card? I'm running 9.1.

    Thanks,
    MK

    I am a Wallstreet owner and I am also running OS 9.1. I have been
    using two PCMCIA Cards a macally DardBus to USB adapter for MAC and a
    OrangeLink FireWrie CardBus PC Card. I have been using both of these
    cards for months with all types of peripherals and I haven't had any
    problems.
