    So, this thread is really old, and I haven't been able to find any newer threads, here or on any of the other forums i'm on. Did anyone ever figure out what the leather folder is? (or was a run of replica ones ever doen?)

    Does anyone have any current leads on the PCMCIA CF. The link above has dried up, and I would like to find one for myself. (If no leads, can someone tell me what brand, make, model. etc I should be looking for?)

    I seem to recall it was said that there were no markings on the binder/folder. It has a new owner now, maybe they will shed some light on it?

    Has anyone finished one of the Companion Papers leather folders. I'm still trying to track down the stuff that goes on the front of the folder. I know a lot of it is covered here, but most of the links no longer lead to the right chip holder thingy, and i have been unable to track one down.

    Also, I could have sworn someone posted, somewhere, a "paper prop" of Mal's "Capter" (vidio player thingy) of Inara from Serenity. It was just a still image, with a border with something off to one side. Does anyone know where I can find that, or does someone have the file.

    I wish someone could identify/find that leather folder thingie.

    There's a PCMCIA card holder on the front and an SD card as far as I remember. And a decal stuck on it. Inside there are two mini CDs and an orange lead pencil plus her certificate. And I think pieces of wood.

    With a sudden spur of motivation I have started to make my own folder. Ordering up the mini CDs and leatherette vinyl now...

    In case anyone wondered, the wood panels are birch plywood which is available in thicknesses of 0.4mm and upwards. I went for 0.8mm.

    OK, it took me four years to complete but here it is! Thanks to F-N-S for his graphics and to the original creator of the certificate sheet.

    Don't be. So easy to make the folder you wouldn't believe. All you need is:

    Stiff card
    Self adhesive vinyl leatherette (or real leather and a suitable glue)
    Birch plywood 0.8mm thick
    Epoxy glue

    The entire frame is made from just four pieces of card cut into shape: Front cover, back cover, spine and pocket.

    Wasn't the metal thing on the front a sandisk camera memory card? or sumpthin'?

    Also, any stitching necessary? Or is it all fold-and-glue?
    Number of leather pieces?
    Dimensions?

    Super job, no doubt!

    Read the whole thread and you'll find most of the answers.

    I used two pieces of leatherette vinyl for the cover, one for the side pocket and one for the pencil pocket. I have no idea if that's the same as the original but you can use as many as you want since there are visible seams showing. I don't think there is any stitching and I can't stich leather/card so I didn't bother. As I already said I used self adhesive vinyl but you can use real leather and glue if you want it to be more fancy.

    SNIP.
    I read back through and saw the specs for the data card,
    but I was still curious what you settled on for your overall dimensions.
    Thanks for the construction info.

    I have to admit, tho', that the data card and holder
    will probably be the straw that breaks my project constructing's back.
    I'm trying to wrap some projects up, and hunting down obsolete electronic storage devices isn't too alluring at this point.

    If I stumble into any, I'm sure I'll be turning to your excellent build for direction.

    Isn't there a picture back in the thread with some dimensions? We know that the CDs are 8cm so you can easily scale the rest from that.

    Those PCMCIA adapters aren't that rare. I found one on ebay a few days ago for another member within 5-10 minutes.

    That's cool to know.
    I went to one of the linked sites and they said the smart media card:
    Digital Camera Memory Guide - PhotographyREVIEW.com
    was obsolete, so I interpreted that as "hard to find".
