    I have a Dell laptop that shipped with USB 1.1, so I've in stalled a USB 2.0 pcmcia card. My question is if I save an image to an external drive and then need to restore, how will the True Image startup/recovery CD be able to find the image? It wil be at the other end of a PCMCIA card, will the CD load the correct drivers to enable the card to work?

    It works fine with my Dell C600 that has only USB 1.1 on the motherboard. I use an Adaptec USB 2.0 PC card to connect to my USB drive. The best test is that booting from the TI Recovery CD shows all the backups on my external drive on the USB 2 card.
