Travel Floppy™

PCMCIA Floppy Storage Subsystem

Autolighter Adapter Now Available

Compactly designed, the Travel Floppy Storage Subsystem brings to the mobile computing environment a quick and economical means of moving data to or from diskette through the PC Card slot.

The Travel Floppy can be connected to virtually any MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95/98/ME, Windows 2000 and NT 4.0 compatible notebook, subnotebook, or palmtop by simply inserting Accurite's custom floppy disk controller, the PassportCard™. The PassportCard is a PCMCIA Type II form-factor card meeting release 2 of the PCMCIA standard.

Convenient to use, users can hot swap the Travel Floppy as needed, and move files to or from a floppy without interrupting their work in progress or requiring exiting the software currently in use. The Travel Floppy can be powered from notebook and subnotebook computers through the PC Card slot, or by the AC adapter for systems with less battery power, like palmtops. With the Travel Floppy, the task of transferring files or making backup copies is simple and inexpensive - and no different than working with the familiar desktop computer.

Small, sleek, very lightweight and yet durable, the Travel Floppy is equally vital whether its primary home is on a desktop for uploading and downloading files or it travels out on the road and is used in the field. Very portable, the Travel Floppy is easily shared amongst several users in an office.

For HP Palmtop users, the Accurite DoubleSlot™ allows the expansion of the Palmtop's single PCMCIA slot to two slots. The Travel Floppy and other PC Card products can then be used simultaneously with the Palmtop.
