    I have a Prodikeys DM keyboard and wanted to use it with my thinkpad T60P.
    But they keyboard is PS/2 only, and does not work with a USB converter.

    Is there such thing as a PS/2 PCMCIA card or should i get a dock or a PCMCIA 9-pin to PS/2 card/cable ?

    I can't find anything. Or i would have to get an even older notebook with PS/2 port :D

    Active PS/2 to USB adapter?
    Those passive adapter only work with keyboards/mouse that already talked USB AND PS/2, they are just two plugs and wires, there are active adapters.

    then i need to fine an active adapter and try.

    So far only found out even active ones only do the 105 standard keys nothing more.

    going to test with a cheap one, who knows.
