I would like to add a smartcard reader to my CF-30. I am looking for the OEM Panasonic kit, not a USB, PCMCIA, or express card adapter. I already have one of those and it is flaking out since I transferred it over when I upgraded from a CF-29. I am hoping the internal version will be more reliable and will also free up my PCMCIA slot.

I need everything- reader, cables, and screws. I am hoping somebody has one on a parts machine or one that they never use that they are willing to remove and sell me. If you need the plastic piece that covers up the slot where the reader goes, I would be willing to ship mine to you as part of the deal. One last thing is that I have to get this past the "boss" for the budget so it has to be fairly inexpensive. Translation, I'm really not looking for a full retail price Panasonic kit- I pretty much need used parts. :D

Will a CF-29 unit work? I have one on a MK5. If you can check this out the price would be fairly right. (fair for you fair for me) I'll send all the pieces.
Or buy the whole unit and strip it yourself.:D

Sorry, I have been out of the loop for drill weekend. They are definietly differnet mounting, although I am not sure if the actual reader is the same part. The 29 has the reader on the left front corner where the GPS and WWAN modem sled goes. The 30 has it mounted under the the SD card slot and network ports on the right side of the laptop inside the door. That does beg the question whether a full 29 sled setup would work in a 30 or not since some of the other sleds can interchange. I will have to research more.

No problem. It'll be here. Maybe Rusty knows. I also have a 51 w/smartcard.

Jeff ...btw..thanks for the explanation re: drill. I am answering these guys and NEVER hearing a word. I'm going to set a 72 hour response envelope for my offers.:D
