(pic of card not to scale)
it is the same size of a PCMCIA card i thought it was a ATA cardbus but have not found any results from searching, i have heard about a new card format called cardexpress any idea's if this is what i need? and if so will be able to add firewire ports with this new card type?

i have tried to use a usb to ipod cable however all this does is freeze my laptop until i unplug the cable, the ports are usb2.

if anybody could post any links to where i can find such a card or any other other info i would really appreaciate

many thanks
