I agree. Something happens to these cards that a PC can get past and a
Newton can not. My very first card was a 4 meg Pretec for my 120, it went
that way. And then a 2 meg Apple card did also.

There was a discussion at some time though I couldn't find it about
the cards controller/ interface? or something like that. I'm guessing
that the issue is at that level which is why the pc can address it.
