Re: Tech2 For 1993 Saab 9000 - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
You can use a standard PCMCIA slot, but you do need a specific application to write the flash... you definitely cannot use "Windows Explorer" or whatever. Something like Elan's Memory Card Explorer works and is fairly readily available.
The other alternative is use tech2cardwriter - a little utility that writes PCMCIA cards in a tech2 via your computer's serial port. I've done this numerous times... it's slow but it works 100%.
Bear in mind that when writing linear flash the software image needs to match the card size. You can't write a 10mb image to a 32mb card. There is a 32mb version of the v44 card available at the link below. You can use tech2cardwriter to write the image to any commonly available Chinese tech 2 PCMCIA card, overwriting whatever is already there.
