The slot on the M6700 is a 26pin 54mmX75mmX22mm Expresscard, which replaced the (quite outdated) 68pin 54mmX85mm CardBus PC Card adapter. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PCCard-ExpressCard_ZP.svg#/media/File:PCCard-ExpressCard_ZP.svg I am not sure that Dell even makes one of these for the M6700 - actually I am quite sure they don't. What I am hoping to do is find a compatible adapter from an older model / 3rd party adapter that I can switch out. I have disassembled the laptop and had a good look/measurement of the space and I believe there is enough room to fit a 68pin card-cage. I would be happy to do some light modification to any adapter, but I wouldn't like to poke at the mainboard or controller. IDEAS: If the above simply does not exist and is impossible to modify - a is it possible to use the eSata expansion bay? It currently houses a 9.5mm slot load r/w. I know there are adapters that look like S*^T or stick out of the side of the card-slot for a foot of so - that's not too sexy. I would prefer not to use one of the adapters unless I it were a slim-box style that (in theory) I could Velcro to the body or something and have it look proper. Could somebody please help me to find a suitable swap? I have truly looked EVERYWHERE and cannot find a solution that looks like a professional job. Here is some accurate info from Parts-People: https://www.parts-people.com/blog/2017/11/30/dell-precision-m4700-p21f001-express-card-cage-removal-installation/ (I also checked with them and so far, no luck) Also: This is all about an Audigy 2 ZS sound card, my ears cannot substitute a modern product.
