Acer Aspire 1640Z laptop. Which memory card to use.

cp928cp928 Posts: 16Member

I have an Acer Aspire 1640Z laptop.  Exploring it and the manual I find that there is a slot on the right hand side of the laptop for a 'Type II PC Card.'

Is a Type II PC Card the same as as memory flash card ?  I understand there a 3 types of card, and that the Type III will not fit a Type II slot, as they are a different thickness to type II.

Thanks in anticipation.

    What is the difference between a pc card type II, and a type II CardBus PC Card ? Perhaps I do not need to go down the pc card route - I am using the USB memory sticks, and dvd/ rwr disks without any problems. It is just a case of being curious (due to my age and getting used to laptops, Windows XP and Vista) always exploring things.
