1.) Overview

The PC Card Manager is a utility to

    - Copy files to PC Cards
    - Copy PC Card contents to files
    - Compare PC Card with file(s)
    - Compute checksum over PC Card (regions)
    - Linear FLASH: Erase Card / Blank Check
    - Perform a surface scan on ATA cards
    - Format SRAM- or ATA PC Cards with FAT file system
    - Socket Status
    - Analyze PC Card (detect type/size)
    - Edit PC Cards (hex-editor)

PCM is completely format independed. PC Cards are treated as a binary
array of bytes.

PCM handles SRAM, linear FLASH and ATA (FLASH and hard disks).
PC Card type and size are detected automatically whenever possible.

2.) Requirements

	PCM has been tested on the operating systems:
    	- Windows 2000 / XP / VISTA
	PCM will not work with non-Microsoft or 16-bit operating systems.

    A CSM PC Card driver supporting the IoCtl32 API is required. At this time,
    the following products are available:
        - OmniDrive Professional
        - OmniDrive USB Professional
        - OmniDrive USB2 Professional
        - SoftDrive Win 95/98
        - MEL-PC/32
        - SoftDrive Win 2000
        - SoftDrive Professional

PC Card driver available. See PCM help for more information about this
