No. To use a PCMCIA Flash memory card in a Newton it must be LINEAR
Flash, not ATA. Also, on a 130 or older unit, they must be 5v/12v cards
(read/write). Max size is 32MB so far as I know.

I've bought from Alix ( in the past. It was a Pretec brand
card ( Other vendors are NewtonOz, Tima Scientific, etc.
