Hi Matthias,

I’ve been trying to get my Newton 2000 connected to BasiliskII to export the contents of my PCMICIA Data Card.  The real “gem” is my Notes (500+) that I would like to get into Einstein.  I’m able to connect to the NCX via the serial to USB on my computer.  But when I open the BasilliskII the only connection I can make is the Einstein Newton not the physical one.  I think it might have something to do with my .basillsk_ii_prefs?  How do I connect to a usb/serial in the Basillisk environment?

Here’s my pref file:

rom /Users/markkuberski/Einstein/Preforma.rom
disk /Users/markkuberski/Einstein/macos755.dsk
disk /Users/markkuberski/Einstein/newt_devel1.1.dsk

Looking forward to your work on getting virtual PCMCIA cards.  This would allow me to use my Einstein Newton for more notes and more things, expanding it greatly.  Very happy with you dedication.
