Looking in ebay I see this item:

Is a parallel (ecp/epp) compact flash reader, that means the best external and removable solution for using in a pc xt I think.

The problem is that Im not sure that runs on an old ibm pc xt spp parallel port. In the readme of the drivers is tested with several spp mainboards but the most low pc is an 386.

Any know something about this cf external device on a ibm pc xt ???

I have the drivers, and appear to run on my 8088 pc xt, but I dont have the device and the drivers says

"device not detected"

I think the cf reader may run, but Im not 100% sure.

The drivers are here : http://www.norsystems.net/drivers/Mdcfe-sr.zip

I hope any can solve my questions, perhaps any have one device like this to confirm me that runs on a ibm pc xt with spp port.


P.D. I have the drivers downloaded from internet, but I not buy the device yet.
