Single-slot PCD-RP-101CS in stock

The PCD202CS 
(or PCD-RP-202CS) and PCD-TP-202CS PCMCIA Card Drives are your most economical solutions to add PCMCIA functionalities to the desktop PCs.

They support one Type III PC Card or two Type I or II PC Cards. 


1. This model supports 16 and 32-bit PCMCIA cards. 

2. You do not need a driver for for this PCI-based PC card readers/writers under Windows XP. Let Win XP to find these readers and install native driver automatically.

3. If you use a 32-bit Cardbus card, Win 98SE may not be automatically detect it. You need to go to control panel to "Add Hardware", the, the card will be detected.

4. If you use Compaq Deskpro EN, EN (SFF) and EN (SFF-v) Series computers or Dell Dimension 4100 and other PCs using Intel 815 chipset motherboard, BOIS upgrade may be needed in order to avoid hardware conflicts.

5. We do not guarantee this reader/writer will work under UNIX or Linux system and we can not provide tech support.

* In order to make it work, your Linux  version must contain one of the following Card Services files:
       1. pcmcia-cs-3.3.8, or
       2. pcmcia-cs-3.0.14
Make sure your Linux also has the needed driver, which we do not provide,  for the PC card you want to use!!!!

6. Note: For customers who use PCMCIA wireless cards:

Most of the wireless cards on the market now are 32-bit cardbus cards so you have to use a PCI-based internal 32-bit PC card reader like PCD202CS, PCD101CS, PCD110CS, P222, P111, etc. listed here. If you are sure your card is a 16-bit one, you can also use the 16-bit front-mount readers like  P423.

PSI does not guarantee the above PCI-based PC card read-writers will 100% work for your Verizon or Sierra Aircards or Kyocera or Novatel, or Qualcomm, etc. wireless cards. The failure is due to a  complex combination of your PC hardware, it's BOIS, your O/S setup and your wireless modem driver. Windows 98, ME & XP normally has fewer problems than Windows 2000
