PCMCIA expresscard firewire


Hi i'm new to Linux. I've used Ubuntu before and I liked it. I am a musician and I want to use Ubuntu with Ardour to record audio to my Thinkpad T530. I have done some research and found that there are many audio interfaces that work with Linux. I want to use a firewire interface but i need to plug in a PCMCIA firewire card. I researched this and found no evidence that any PCMCIA firewire expresscard will work with linux. Does this mean my mission really is impossible? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Do you have a hardware interface to connect the express card? Then it should work. May be you need to enable it into your Linux OS kernel first. Please check the following link:

I didn't get the expresscard yet. I think maybe they all will work with linux and that is why it is rarely discussed. I'm going to buy a startech one to connect to a saffire pro 40. If it doesnt work I'll come back to this link. Thanks

It is an expresscard or a pcmcia? Pretty sure they are different.
