PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

Can someone tell me what the restrictions are for using PCMCIA cards for the Nortel Option 11 Switch?

Do I have to use Just Compact Flash or Can I use Sony Memory stick with a PCMCIA converter.


RE: PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

That might work, but you can buy Compact Flash cards on Ebay for about $5. I bought 10 64Mb and they work fine.

RE: PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

How big of a card should I have and how many?

RE: PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

a complete nortel opt 11 with 7000 stations will backup on a single floppy, so size may not be the consideration. i very seldom opt 11, so someone here may know the recogmended size

Would suggest minimum of 64M.

RE: PCMCIA Cards and Nortel Option 11

if i remember right that is what nortel ships, seems like a waste of space, but now that their 80 cents per meg it doesn't matter. not to long ago a 4 meg was a couple of hundred...

I use a "PCMCIA to CF adapter" with a 32Mb CF card formatted with a win98 system. I do upgrades and backups with that card. I've also tried a 512 Mb CF card with no problems. You can get this anywhere at a cost of app 20$.
