Are those the standard full size PCMCIA flash cards or the one with
the special formatting that PC laptops don't recognize?

With the price of compact flash these days, and two ~$10
adaptors, you could have 2GB in there easily if they take
standard flash.

I have what appears to be a perfect Newton MP 120 that I have
no AC adaptor for...anyone know of any good online resources
for trying to trouble-shoot it (other than the Newton FAQ)?  I
think it may just be a dead backup battery, but don't know for
