I'm a novice in the land of CD burning so be gentle.
I have an IBM Thinkpad T22 running Windows ME which is a couple of years old now so I'm assuming my only USB port is 1.1 at best. I need a CD burner for creating CD photo albums and backing up my hard drive files. I like the idea I've seen in a couple of postings where you hook up an external enclosure to a laptop that houses an internal burner.
Question is, how do I get from USB 1.1 to a position where I can use a SUB2.0/Firewire device? Assuming you're USB2.0 compliant, do these enclosures then connect to a laptop via the USB2.0 port?
I've seen a couple of PCMCIA adapter cards that might do the trick - can anyone recommend some good ones, particulary those that support USB2.0 and Firewire? Are there any other options or is PCMCIA the only way ahead?
Many thanks for your patience,
