Every so often Poqet cables are offered here.

I have read here that the connector to the printhead of old Okidata 80, 
90, 182, 192 series printers will fit the Poqet Classic port. With that 
connector, and pinouts available in the Archives or from Bryan, you can 
roll your own cables.

PC cards &POQET PLUS by KA5T Larry Wise <lewise@xxxxxxxx>

Gang:

Does anyone understand why the SDRAM of up to only 2MB can be used,
but the Compact  Flash card of up to 110 MB apparently can be used, and
the Smart Card cannot be used at all????  They can all be made to fit
into the PC card slot....

Is this only a case of appropriate software, or is it something
to do with the hardware proper????

Seems like the Smart Cards  are about half the price of the Compact
Flash cards....Sure would be nice to use these...

Hi,

Information on how to get SRAM cards to work in Windows 95/98 can be found
in the Poqet PC FAQ on the Poqet PC Web site, at
<http://www.bmason.com/PoqetPC/>.
