I am the first owner of the 200LX and I have never
any pcmcia devices in it, perhaps it is broken? I hate to spend money on

Are you running the cic100 card and socket services driver?
Go to a DOS prompt and run mem /c to find out.
If you aren't running it, you won't be able to use any flash cards, and
most other PCMCIA cards also.

If you boot the 200LX without an autoexec.bat and config.sys in the c:
drive, it uses the ones in d: by default. You can also hit the alt key
right after booting to tell it to boot from the d: drive.
Remember that booting will turn on the serial port, so you need to go
into setup and turn it off so it doesn't drain the batteries too soon. A
nice program for doing that is ppal.exe.
