    I have the Toshiba S4384. It has a big card slot on the left. I dont know exactly what kind of slot this is?? Can someone find out for me??It has 2 release levers on it because it is a 2 slot thing ,one on top of the other. The top one has pins across the back..the bottom is different and its hard to see what it has. its a 2005-6 model.If it is indeed an express slot I can buy a USB 3.0 part and it should slide right in. ...it might be another kind of card reader...
    I have several ports on this that I dont need. ...a cd tray,RS 232 port,phone jack,S video jack and a couple USB 2.0 that I dont need. Can I get a USB 3.0 rig that will easily fit into those spaces if I remove them???
    What would you do with this laptop if you wanted a USB 3.0 on the S4384...??

    It list it as a pcmcia card slot on this site

    So ebay should be the place to look

    its an express crd slot. the L shaped cards will fit in it. But this laptop is too old to bother investing in.
    The on button is about to break. I will just get a new laptop.
