I think the ac adapter was the one who toasted the card, because I =
(the card) into my MP2K and use it about one or two days. When I =
the ac adapter, the card stop to work and them appeared the error code
My AC adapter is not an apple made. It is an adaptation. I avoid to use =
since then. My MP2K has more two problems:
1- it drags batteries a lot. I use 4 2500A and it works about two days.
2- the pen writes well only in some positions of screen. Do you =
I have to write under de position that I want to the trace appears, in =
place of the screen.
Can I fix it?

I think your Newton or your card is defective.
Error -10572 is kError_ATA_Aborted_Command.
If ATA Support is frozen or not installed, it means that the non-=3D20
working ATA driver in NewtonOS cannot read the card. It's not the =3D20
usual error code (instead, it returns -10582) and it probably means =
that the card is toasted.
If ATA Support is installed and active, since ATA Support doesn't =3D20
generate such an error, I would say that it means that the card is in =
such a state that ATA Support did not recognize it as an ATA card and =
that the built-in non-working ATA driver in NewtonOS is telling you =
that the card is toasted.
In other words, the card is considered as toasted by software =3D20
components of your unit.
This can either be that it is toasted indeed or that the card slot is =
To figure it out, I suggest inserting the ATA card into another =3D20
computer such as a laptop. If a laptop can use the card, then it's =3D20
not completely dead. It might not mean that the Newton's slot is =3D20
defective because the PCMCIA controller in the Newton is different =3D20
from modern PCMCIA controllers and ATA cards have three modes, only =
two are possible with Newton hardware, some laptops might use the =3D20
third mode (closer to hard disks). But if the laptop doesn't =3D20
recognize the card, the card is surely dead. It does not necessarily =
mean that the Newton's PCMCIA controller is entirely functionning.
It seems to be weird that an AC adaptor could toast a card. ATA =3D20
Support configures the Newton's controller and the card with the =3D20
lowest voltage to save battery (well, I think it does save battery), =
which basically mean that your 3.3 or your 5v line had a power surge =
and this could have damaged more than just the card as most =3D20
electronic bits are powered by 3.3 or 5v lines, unless the card only =
works in 12v. Compact Flash cards work at 3.3v.
