Has anyone figured out a way to read a Newton Flash memory card if
inserted into the PCMCIA slot of a powerbook?
Just think this might be a better way to transfer data to the Mac.



Not yet. As some have mentioned you can copy the complete image of the
card and rewrite the complete image of the card. That's kinda helpful
when you really think about it. Set up a card, make the way you like,
and then save an image. Of course with the Newton connection utilities
you could do that. But more conventional and normal utilities are
needed for a larger scale (since the Newton Connection Utility seems to
crap out somewhere in the saving process for images that get larger than
say 20 mb.. that is way it was when I tried it.)

But no reading and writing individual files yet. :*(
