Well, I don't all the technical details but if the card can be
brought physically in the computer, theoretically, it should be
possible to write a driver to recognize the data. I'm a programmer
but I've never done low level programming like this, so I'm not sure
about the work involved but, like I said, theoretically, it should be
possible. I would think that with the work Paul Guyot has done for
his ATA driver, he would know a bit about the format of the card once
it's been formatted by the Newton.
