PanasonicToughbook CF-27: PCMCIA/USB 2.0 Card

I need some help with my CF-27: Is there any PCMCIA/USB 2.0 card, that is really working? My DeLock Cardbus 2.0 installs properly and seems to work but freezes after 2 Minutes when I attach a device. No matter if WiFi or stick.
An Option UMTS/WiFi card however works fine.
Any hints?

CF-27 Type: 27EB6GCE3
Serial CYAA01005
Bios V2.00L10G

Re: PanasonicToughbook CF-27: PCMCIA/USB 2.0 Card

Unless you can use external power to the usb 2.0 pcmcia card, a CF-27 probly won't handle the load.
Their power adapters are only 15V and the unit itself is a P2 433 at best. It's just pulling too much power.
Good luck

Does the panasonic cf27 have an ADSL port?

I was able to ( all about the CF27 and apparently it does not have the required port (an Ethernet RJ-45).

They do sell PCMCIA ethernet cards if you wanted to add one.

My usb ports dont work in my toshiba satellite A135-S2386

Unplug the PCMCIA card first.
Then disable the onboard USB hub and ports. Shutdown, plug in the PCMCIA card and reboot into Windows.
Let Windows detect the card and if necessary put in the driver CD for the card. Had similar issues with my desktop PCI USB card.
After disabling the Onboard though it works perfectly fine now.

Hope this might help you a lot.
Good luck!

Please rate me if i a m helpful.
Thank you.

How can the usb port 1.1 be upgraded to 2.0?


There might be man options :-

1. if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot you can buy a USB 2.0 PCMCIA adaptor.

2. You can purchase one USB 2.0 PC card ( from sites like ebay etc) with four ports. This lets you swap it around from laptop to laptop, depending upon which one might happen to need it at any given time (for backups to external HD, camera downloads, etc.). For most other purposes, like moving stuff to and from flash drives, it's really ok with the old 1.1 port. The only disadvantage of this solution is that the card is so large that it doesn't allow simultaneous use of a wifi card. The solution to this problem was to buy a USB-WiFi card. This was a bit steep, but we only needed one of them -- just for whichever PC happened to be using the USB 2 adapter.

Where do i attach a 802.11 g interally on a CF-27 toughbook?

Internal wireless adaptors are not made for generic use. Each motherboard used a different design to it. You will have to use a USB type adaptor.

Thinkpad 380ed + USB PCMCIA-card. Can it work?

This is probably due to the power requirements of the pcmcia card you have plugged in. There are 5volt and 3.3volt slots. You have probably plugged a 5volt card into a 3.3volt pcmcia slot.

Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook series suggested PCMCIA TV Tuner Card

Hi, Most brand/models will work for your laptop as long as the correct drivers are installed for the laptop's OS (Vista). One thing noticeable is slight heat build-up on most PCM CIA cards. On the other hand external TV via USB connection tend not to heat as much and does not load nor draw power from the laptop since they have their own power adapters. Both however will have a lower video quality compared to cable directly connected to TV connection. There are a number of models from AverMedia which should work straight out. My experience with Leadtek models has also been satisfactory so far. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.
