I returned a laptop computer and forgot to take out my usb receiver. Is there anyway I can purchase another one?


First thing I'd do is call the store that you returned the laptop to and tell them it was still in there. Most stores are pretty good for catching these things.

As far as purchasing a new adapter you have dozens of options. Try to match the speed ie a G or N type card. Thats about the only thing to look at. You can also consider a extension cable that lets you put the adapter away from the laptop a bit. Thats handy but not needed. And you also have the option of getting a PCMCIA type network adapter. These fit into the credit card type slots on the side of the laptop not the USB. These are a bit faster and take less to operate so they don;t use up as much cpu or memory to work (better choice if it is older slower laptop) the only problem is they cost a bit more.
Stick with a name brand and try to find a good warranty. Some of the off brand cards are 30 days and that seems to be how long they last. A good one will last years.

My dear! alway remember that when you use any new hardware you should install driver first and then plug it with CPU. So it could be possible that when you install driver first then card will pick and work properly.
Thank You

Voltage/polarity of power supply for NEC pcmcia 4 port USB2 card


If you KNOW it is 5 volts then you only need to make sure that the amp is higher and never lower. Higher amp only means it can work without getting too hot. But the VOLTS MUST BE precise. For polarity it is MOST common to have the center pin PLUS and outer NEG/GND. When I fix laptops and put the powercord wrong nothing happens. When I get it right then lights go on on PC.

Pci card slot


Dennis,

Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can not say with 100% certainty.

However this is a common place that laptop manufacturers put what is called a PCMCIA slot. This serves much the same function as a PCI slot does in a Desktop unit with a couple of exceptions. the cards that fit into this slot are completely housed in a metal sheath (To meet FCC regulations about interference) and the cards are typically smaller, and are "Hotswappable" which means they can be removed and replaced in the laptop without powering down and rebooting.

THere are Many adapters that can use this slot from Ethernet cards, to WiFI adapters, and even external Audio cards.

PCMCIA cards come in "Type I" and "Type II" varieties. All PCMCIA slots are type I compatable but before you buy a type II card be sure to check for compatability.

Depending on your manufacturers spec's for THAT model laptop you may have as few as on slot or many stacked one on top of each other.

Hope this helps you,
Dave

How can I connect a wireless adapter to my toshiba portege 660 cdt as there is not a port on it for the usb to fit in to


Hi,

I am assuming that your wireless adapter is USB and that your Toshiba Portege 660 CDT has a PCMCIA slot. If yes then you would need something like a PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter as shown here. The added advantage is that you would have an extra USB port. Just pls make sure that the PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card adapter you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Alternately, you can try swapping your USB WiFi for a PCMCIA version similar to this. Again, pls make sure that the PCMCIA Wireless network card you will purchase is compatible with your laptop and has drivers appropriate for your Operating System.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wireless network setup


Hi,

Based on your post, you currently have a working Netgear WiFi Card installed in your laptop. What you want to do is remove it from the laptop and install the said card to your desktop.

For your desktop to be able to accept the NetGear WFi card which is a PCMCIA Cardbus device, you need to install either:
1. a USB Adapter for PCMCIA as shown here; or
2. a CardBus/PCMCIA to PCI Adapter Card available here.

Either one will work. Of course you need to install the necessary drivers for the NetGear MA701NA in your desktop which is available from the CD installer that came with the NetGear or online here.

Considering the cost of the USB adapter or the PCMCIA to PCI card, you may want consider buying a PCI WiFi card or USB WiFi dongle.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

D770 Mini Plug to IEEE 1394 Interface


Hi Paul, Sorry, but there is no firewire setup on the D770. There is a video output jack on the camera only. You will have to use big ATA or PCMCIA cards and plug them into the PCMCIA card slot. You can also use PCMCIA card adapters for MemoryStick, SmartMedia, and CompactFlash cards(CF). Those are your only options of media for the laptop or PC. The camera comes with a parallel port PCMCIA cardreader. It is reccommended to be used on your PC. Hope this info helps you out.

No, from what I have been reading, it isn't compatible. Other users report an Error 14. Sony does say in their manual that not even all PCMCIA cards will work.
