I've searched high and low in singapore but i just cannot find a shop selling Cardbus CF card readers.. all of them are selling the slower PCMCIA cousins. does anyone know where i can get them and at what price?
All 32 bit PC card devices tend to have a golden 'edge' (don't know the tech term). It's some kind of internationally agreed spec standard.
FWIW, I got Storage Studio at SLS to bring this one in for me quite some time ago (they don't stock these). Can't remember the price (all I can remember was that it was good, but then I am a regular customer). I think these are now available locally in other shops. (Wasn't there some old thread on these things a long time ago)
[I had countless hilarious encounters with salesmen and saleswomen who argued with me that there's no such thing (SouthAsia at Funan), or they just don't know WTF the difference is between 16bit and 32bit PC card devices]
You can actually ask SS to bring stuff in from Akihabara that you might have seen online for a small extra. As long as they know you or if you leave a good deposit. You can't expect firm delivery dates though.
I might get them to bring this in for me: http://suntac.jp/product/aqa026/ (Mariah Carey should be good to crap to since she sings really shitty music, heh heh heh)
it's actually Delkin. Belkin doesn't sell the cardbus CF card reader. you can try ordering online, but the shipping rate's ridiculous.
Unless you specify a shop name, it's hard for anyone to go roaming the whole funan like i did the other time. i had to describe to the shops why their card reader isn't cardbus so many times that it's kinda tiring.. i did a search previously, there was a MO some time back, offering the reader for 100+. kinda expensive. i regretted not buying it when i went to japan. hahaha. over there there's IO-data, buffalo and Aska
anyway, thanks for all your help. i got mine already. asked my friend to help me buy from japan, cost me less than $40 for this cardbus reader (2,700 yen). cheap cheap! can't imagine why those selling on US websites online goes for 39 to 49 USD without shipping...
