    I suspect you are talking about using a cardbus (PCMCIA) card in a new laptop with an expresscard slot.

    Yes, you can get adapters (either cardbus into expresscard or expresscard into cardbus) but they seem to be quite expensive.

    Unless you've got a lot of different cardbus cards you may well be better advised to just switch formats and forget the cardbus cards. If you decide to do that I'd suggest you go for USB rather than expresscard, that way you are more likely to have flexibility for the future.

    An example of why it is better to go for USB:

    Needed a network connection for a 3 yr old pc, Cheap mobo so no ethernet port included. Really awkward to work on so pulling the system out to add a pci card will take about half an hour.

    Solution:
    USB ethernet adapter
    Price 0.01
    P&P 3.56
    Time to fit: 30 seconds.

    Cheaper solution for the customer, so he's happy.
    Easy solution for me, so I'm happy.

    Edit: just found one with p&p only 3.53
    I've been ripped off.
