The Expresscard slot in a laptop has to support *BOTH* PCI Express *AND* USB technologies. However, an Expresscard only has to support ONE of these technologies. A USB to Expresscard adapter will only work if the Expresscard is using the USB technology or protocol. A lot of people have an Expresscard that uses PCI Express technology and NOT USB. This is why people will state that these adapters do not work. This newer USB to Expresscard adapter works just fine with my Sprint Merlin EX720 Expresscard. In fact, it will work with ANY express card using the USB I/O bus instead of the PCI Express bus. The drivers for the card were already installed on my machine. All I had to do was plug in this adapter. There was no need for a reinstallation of software/drivers.
