The Type II CF Cards, including IBM Microdrives, can sometimes be difficult to remove from the Atek CF Pocket Compact Flash Type I to Type II Adapter.
HP Jornada 520, 525, 540, 545, 547, and 548 - Tip for Easily Removing Type II CF Card from Atek's CF Pocket Adapter
Making a pull-tab
The Atek CF Pocket Compact Flash Type I to Type II Adapter does not have an ejector mechanism. To make it easier to remove CF Cards from the Atek CF Pocket Compact Flash Type I to Type II Adapter, make a little pull-tab as follows:
Cut a 2-inch long piece of clear adhesive tape.
1/2-inch from the top of the strip of tape, fold the tape down on itself (sticky sides facing each other) to create a 1/2-inch section that is not sticky on either side.
Affix the remaining 1-inch sticky section of tape to the back of your CompactFlash card. If you are using an IBM Microdrive, affix the tape slightly off-center to avoid covering the vent hole on the card.
Using this pull-tab will make it easier to remove cards.
