Trouble... need some brains in here!!

Ok, my brother just bought a brand new Dell, and instead of having just a regular PCMCIA slot, it has a PCIExpress (some ppl call it an Expresscard) slot. Is there any adapter or external PCMCIA USB adapter?

Nah, I think he's confusing PCMCIA for PCI. PCI-E is faster than PCI and everything they make PCI, they make PCI-E (1x, 8x, or 16x). Don't think there is an adapter though.

No, ok... Expresscard is the technology that is replacing the PCMCIA slots on laptops. It is the equivalent to PCI Express in a desktop. So we got this brand new laptop with the Expresscard slot, and we are trying to use a PCMCIA card, but its a different style connection... So im trying to find out if there is an external PCMCIA slot (kinda like the External Flash memory readers, but for a PCMCIA card)

PCI Express is a video card slot. Express card slots are totally different. I have not seen anything for them yet though is the problem. I hope that they come out with some stuff for you guys soon.

Actually, PCI Express is not specifically a video card slot. It's designed to not only replace AGP, but also to replace PCI entirely. Meaning boards with 6 or 7 PCI-E slots, instead of 5 or 6 PCI slots + an AGP slot.
