Hi Laurent

This card will only work if you install an Paul Guyot's ATA Support driver available from www.kallisys.com

On a $/MB basis you might be better to buy a 2GB CF or SD card and get a PCMCIA adapter for it.  This would still require you to use Paul's driver but this is free.

You could also do a search for linear flash memory on eBay.  A lot of those cards will work in a Newton but the downside is that many come out of routers so they will have had quite a lot use.  This is a problem because flash memory cards have a limited life.

You can find out more from here: http://myapplenewton.blogspot.com/2009/04/newton-memory-101.html

Frank Gruendel (Germany, newtontalk at pda-soft dot de) and/or Russ Bravo (UK, russbravo at lineone dot net) might have a few linear flash cards might still have some 20MB cards available.
