    I see mention ABOUT linear cards there, but not specific cards. And I
have yet to see a place where it mentions where you can get a linear flash
card that is over 32 meg in size.

  Unless I'm reading this wrong the highest card they off... let's check
here... yep, 20 mb in one, and 32 mb in the other.

>and Paul's site for ATA: http://www.kallisys.com/newton/ata/compat/?lg=en

   Yeh, about that... there is mention of the 1 GB microdrive, and it is
listed as working. But at the very end of the entry it says.. " Works!!!
   What is the "But..." specifics would be good.

Quote from the kallisys site...

"IBM Microdrive 1GB with PCMCIA IBM PC-Card-Adapter for IBM microdrives 1
GB 2104704 IBM-DSCM-11000 SC2IC915 1.0RC3 Jens Gleisberg
MP2100 D Works!!! But...."

    So at this point, the 1GB microdrive would be nice, love to hear more
about that. I have yet to find a site that shows all the linear flash cards
that are compatible with the Newton.

    Look forward to hearing from anyone who can answer these new questions,

    Doc Clu
