> Hi Guys,
> Long story short: One of the Newton users asked me how to run this card on Newton, because his card won’t work. I’ve tried my cards (i have 5 cards). Non of them works… 


I will answer for my own message. That will be funny for you :)

I’m noob!

To be honest, in my whole time with Newton, I’m the collector. More that the user. Especially 1x0 models. NewtonOS 1.x don’t offer great internet connection, so it is more like fun playing with old Newton. I’ve never used any PCMCIA cards with these models. I’m 2x00 and eMate user. So, probably, that is my mistake…

My all Getting Started cards are fine. I just did NOT lock the ‘locking tab’ on the back of my Newtons, after I’ve inserted PCMCIA card xD (ta bum tssss - you can laugh now :) ) Why? I just thought that this locking tab is mechanical only :)

What is good in this story:

1. Me and Sylvain (he asked me yesterday about it), we have had a lot of laughing yesterday :)
2. Everyday something new about Newton.
3. We have first photos of the Getting Started card inside now (on my website).
4. We will have x-ray photo of this card in future (I’m waiting for scan).

Have nice day, Newtonians!
