Default PCMCIA Hard Disk Card

I am looking to find a reader for Epson 340mb Hard Disk Cards, Model EHDD340 PCMCIA cards. These were spinning media created to use in mobile devices probably 15 years ago. Does anyone know where I can get a reader or what compatible device could access these drives? I can still get the drives on Ebay, etc but cannot find a compatible reader.

Perhaps something like this will work? https://www.amazon.com/USB2-0-Interf...WZ4JEMVNTKQ3X9

Hi - Yes I did try that product but it didn't work. It's actually configured for San Disk type Flash Disk ATA solid state PC Card. The Epson device is a spinning media device and is twice as thick so needs a higher clearance slot. I suspect more power capabilities as well than what can be delivered but USB 2.0. I appreciate your response. Still looking. Thanks -

That looks like it might work. It definitely needs to be buss connected. However that model is not available but there is another version on the site that may work. I'll try anything at this point. Really appreciate you tracking that down. Thanks!
