Problem is, simply finding a Linear Flash, that an eMate will write to, is
an impossible feat. You will have to resign yourself to configuring your
eMate to run with a read-only flash card in your spare slot. Use it for
apps, dictionaries, ebooks, and the like. ATA can read and write but on a
25Mhz eMate, perhaps one without a memory upgrade, this may be an
impractical solution for everyday usage.

Read-only for the external slot, while saving all data to the internal
store, works perfectly fine. You will appreciate the speed of an external
PCMCIA flash card, even though it is read-only. Use your MP2000/MP2100 to
fill the card up and then insert it in the eMate.

And, of course, do play around with ATA and Compact Flash adapters. It may
take a while to get it working reliably but that sheer amount of storage
space is worth blowing your mind over, in the end.
