PCCard software. According to RISCOS Ltd, the software should run with an amended !Run file (take out the line which loads !MemFix). I can't get it to run though. THIS DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU.

RISC OS 4 version is more probably by RISCOS Ltd!

According to the June edition of Acorn User, OS4 should increase the speed of the PC card by around 30%. I cannot verify this.
