Pros: Works wonderfully with the AT&T Option GT Ultra Express. The card does not oversheat like when connected directly to the express card slot. Works great with my desktops PCs. Incredible bang for the buck

Question:

I have a Gateway laptop with 1 PCMCIA slot. Also, I have a HP Yuan EC680 Analog TV Tuner Expresscard and I would like to know if I can use the "SIIG USB to ExpressCard Adapter" (SW-8229) to use that Expresscard. I have Windows Vista Ultimate. Or, which part or adapter you would recomend to me.


Answer:

This adapter (SW-8229) should work for you as long as your Express card is USB based. If you are unsure about whether or not your card is USB it is best to contact the supplier of the card.

Question:

I have bought the X-FI XTREME AUDIO NOTEBOOK EXPRESSCARD/54 from CREATIVE and I would like to know if I can use the SIIG USB to ExpressCard Adapter to connect it to my SONY VAIO VGN-FZ31Z which has an expresscard/34 slot instead of a 54 slot.Notice that I have already contacted the supplier of my audio card(CREATIVE),but I haven't received a specific answer regarding whether the X-FI card is USB based or not. Is there any way to recognise by myself if the above audio card is USB based or not??? If I make an order for this adapter and my audio card doesn't work, is it possible to refund my purchase?


Answer:

Creative would be the best way to determine if the X-Fi is USB based. We do have a 30 day return policy, and if we recieve all the parts and packaging in good condition there is not a restocking fee, so you only really risk the shipping fees.

Answer:

As long as your card is USB- based then this should work just fine. We haven't had any compatibility problems with any USB cards.
