Thank you for purchasing the SMC EZ CardBus PC Card. SMC has done everything to
ensure that our adapters are compatible with the widest range of notebook and
laptop PCs possible. As a company, we are equally committed to customer
satisfaction and timely response to the needs and concerns of our customers.

To use the SMC EZ CardBus-II PC Card, you must have a notebook computer equipped
with a CardBus controller and the CardBus sockets.  Many of the notebook
computers on the market today have PCMCIA sockets that accept 16-bit PCMCIA cards
only.  Even though the PCMCIA card sockets and the CardBus sockets look the same
on the outside, the SMC EZ CardBus-II Card will not work in those notebooks with
only 16-bit PCMCIA card support.

A CardBus socket on a notebook computer can accept either the 32-bit CardBus card
or the 16-bit PCMCIA card.  However, on some notebooks the sockets are configured
to work with only one type of cards at a time. If the sockets in your notebook
are configured to be in the Intel 82365 compatible mode (i.e. 16-bit PCMCIA mode),
you should run the setup utility that comes with the notebook to change the mode
to 32-bit CardBus mode.
