The quick and cheap migration to a desktop PC if you have the PCMCIA GPIB
card is to get a PCI to PCMCIA adapter. They are cheap and plentiful for as
little at $6.50. e.g.
omain_0&hash=item1e676cb24f#ht_500wt_1413 They do work well with the NI
card, having used the combo with the 5370 successfully.

I am looking for a PCI-GPIB card to use in a machine running windows XP.
After looking on Ebay there are many different options at many different
I am not sure which would be compatible with my set up.
Currently I have a ACER Laptop, with a NI PCMCIA GPIB card and I was able
to locate the drivers to make it run with the TimeLab, the HP 5730B,
I have a Dell dimension 2400 desktop, which runs other Ham radio software,
like weak signal DSP, some Seismograph, Dataq data logging and others.
This computer has a spare PCI slot and I would like to move the HPIB
capabilities into this machine, so I only need to run 1 computer.
Maybe someone is looking for a trade for the PCMCIA GPIB Card and cable?
Thank you for the help
