Hi,


I just bought the E100HS, with the PC Card Slot on the front. And I have a 256MB Compact Flash (Type I) card, that I use with my Canon S230 Digital Camera.


Any recommendations on the brand/type of Compact Flash PC Card adapter that I need to buy, so I can view my pictures?


Thanks!

I would think most PC card adapters for the Compact Flash card will work with your E100. I'm using some generic branded adapter and it works just fine on my E100.

Hi Jeffong,


Thanks for the response!


I guess my concern is the compatibility between TYPE I CF Adapters, and the TYPE II PC Adapter slot that is on the E100, as I understand it to be.

I thought that Type II slots are backwards compatible and will accept type I cards/adaptors. Could be mistaken though. If you already have a type I adaptor just try it an see if it works.

That's what I read also, but I don't have experience with either. I just ordered a Type II adapter that accepts Type I CF cards, and I think this should work just fine.


Thanks everyone, for all the input!

Type I and Type II refer to the thickness of the card only. The pinout and functionality are identical. A type II card is thicker. If you have a type II slot, both type I and type II will fit in it. If you have a type I slot, type II cards would be too thick to fit.
