I know, it's 10 years plus out of date and has lots of problems but as a little project I wanted to try and inject some life back into the CCC.

I have done NBT and CIC retrofits but now there are so many used CCC units about, CCC to non idrive retrofit is a cheap and good upgrade for even the oldest e90.

But I want to usethe dedicated expansion slots to upgrade the unit.

Has anyone managed to successfully connect a PMC board or PCMCIA card to the unit?

PMC hard drive cars are seriously expensive but PCMCIA slots are cheap and viable... any experts who have done this?

In case anyone was wondering the PMC expansion connectors are the 3 identical ports on the top right of this photo.

I assume the smaller one on the bottom right of the group of connectors is some kind of PCMCIA connector for a ribbon? Anyone got any info?

Cheers.

Hmm...interesting, but not sure even if you did manage to mount a PMC hard drive, how / what would the application do with it ?

I think these run a reduced O/S ( some form of Linux / QNX based type ). You could possibly install a light based Linux flavour , but how would you then convert / bridge CAN and MOST messages ?

The CCC / CIC and even the NBT are still the master gateway / controller for this.

I thought you would take on this project:

try to convert from CANBUS to CANBUS2

Hi, thanks for reply.

Yes, CCC is vxWorks distro. I've looked at this already. Perhaps reverse engineering it when I get time.

I will try to upload a map update via the PMC card I have and remove the DVD. To be honest this is the only value I see in this project.
