2. NEW: Fixed Device Driver for CF & PC Card
Typically, PC Cards
are recognized under Windows as removable devices in standard
PCMCIA slots (for instance in notebooks). But Windows supports
only one partition and only FAT-formatted memory cards.
altec developed a new driver for Windows 2000 and XP, which
mounts these cards even in standard PCMCIA slots as a Fixed Device, thus
making functions such as partitioning or NTFS formatting available like
with a HDD.
This way, for instance CF or PC Cards with several partitions,
which are used in embedded systems as HDD-replacements, can be used in notebooks

if you need specific adjustments for your applications, please
