I have a Kodak Picture Card Adaptor and 32 Meg card.
I find that to take the 32 Meg card out of the adaptor, I have
to remove the adaptor from my 701. Then you propose to put the
adaptor back in the TP, empty?
Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question. However,
since these adaptors cost only a few $, there must be no
electronics inside them, so I doubt they would draw any power.
Whether an empty card might confuse Windows is another
The setup works quite well, incidentally. Instantly recognized
by Win95a. Takes about 0.5 seconds per pic to download to the
hard disk. If I have a few small, critical files, I can back
them up to the memory card without jeopardizing the
photo-taking capabilities, much.
