A word of *WARNING*:

Use a PCMCIA Card you may be willing to sacrifice.

Once you use either the Write or Erase command in Memory Card Explorer, it will completely wipe out the contents of a BackUp/Restore PC Card, or any other Partner ACS PCMCIA (Linear Flash) Card.

There is code/software on the BackUp/Restore PC Card which gives it the ability to Back Up and Restore system settings.

If you are going to use a BackUp/Restore PC Card (PCMCIA) for the purpose of upgrading a system, back-up the contents of the card first using the "Read (new file)" Operations command from either the pull down menu or the buttons in the Memory Card Explorer Window.

When saving the BackUp/Restore PC Card to a file it can be named something like "ACSBckRestoreMstr.bin" .

I don't know that I will be venturing into SD cards as the version I have of Memory Card Explorer is only for PCMCIA style Type II, III cards whether they be:

"16 bit, Wireless LAN Card (802.11b, Bluetooth, etc.), SRAM cards, Linear Flash cards, ATA cards, Modem cards and LAN cards".

As is the Elan P423 hardware also.

With the above, though setting up a working system can be a bit of a hassle, you are dealing with binary files which can be I believe in almost any format. With Linear Flash cards they do not require formatting, (proprietary or otherwise).

If the files used with SD cards are not directly transferable with a PC using something like Synchrotech's SD Card Reader seen here:

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 XQD and SD Card Reader + USB 3.0 port

Their SD card readers do not require software that I know of.

The USB compatible PCMCIA Card readers from Syncrotech with software are presently $569.00 which includes the software.

Even with the digging I did, I believe what I spent to make this work was around half the price.

There are reports from the MHHAuto Usergroup that Memory Card Explorer v3.21 will operate under Windows 7 as well.

Not sure if I answered your question though.

In addition SD Cards like ATA Flash cards require formatting before use.

If Avaya, Panasonic etc. use proprietary formatting scheme, which is different from a PC or MAC it will not be easy to replicate those cards. An alternative might be cloning software similar to that used with HDDs.
