I have an old Toshiba Satellite 300CDT with Win95, which I had to reinstall.
The reinstall went OK but I can't seem to get PCMCIA working. Device manager Identified the PCMCIA driver as Toshiba To PIC97 CardBus but I can't find this anywhere, and the Toshiba website does not seem to acknowledge that there ever was a Satellite 300CDT. Any Suggestions?

Old Toshiba's have a companion disk that has the laptops specific drivers and hardware set up program. Do you have this disk?

In addition - I would try to change the PCMCIA type in the BIOS setup, there used to be a few choices, PIC, 16 bit, or cardbus.

Try using one of the other options and see if this helps.

Also a driver for a similar model or using the same chipset should work, so search the toshiba driver site for
PIC97 CardBus  or similar.

I hope this helps !

I believe this is the file OGG is referring to.  It doesn't specifically list your model, but it may be the one you need.

Can you provide the other part number information which is probably on the bottom of the laptop?  It will probably be a number preceeded by P/N or M/T or something like that...

Also, is this a US-purchased laptop or from Europe, and if in Europe, what country?

Ahh, I have found it...apparently it is an Australian model.  I went to Toshiba's Australian website and was able to find the 300CDT.  Here are several downloads you might be interested in for Win95.  Found at:

Yep, those are them.
Dogztar has located the files that normally come on the Toshiba's companion disk. You might want to confirm that your PCMCIA slot is a cardbus or not. Most older Toshiba's only came with standard PCMICA. Cardbus PCcards will not work in them.

I don't know what we'd be doing with an Australian model, we're in Ireland!

Tried the 310CDT files as jhance suggested and got the PCMCIA modem up and running.

Thanks For the help everybody.

>>>and have been rewarded with a grade of B.

What a kind user you are!  Not only did I answer your question specifically but I pointed you to the EXACT location to find the files needed.  And your way of saying thanks is to grade with a B!  What did I need to do to get an A from you?  Come to your place and install the drivers for you?

But then I see this is your pattern:

Perhaps you are seeing a different page than I am...I went to the page jhance linked and just got a huge list of various drivers for the 310CDT...I gave you *direct* links to the .exe files, along with a few other utilities etc.  The files I linked came from the Australian website, but they're still for the same model.
