Non-Plug & Play ISA Erweiterungskarte


Explanation:
Im Microsoft Glossary wird expansion card als "Erweiterungskarte" übersetzt.

Plug and Play wird als solches gänzlich aus dem Englischen übernommen. Prinzipiell werden bei Software grammatikalische Überlegungen vernachlässigt (nach meiner Erfahrung). ISAerweiterungskarte wäre daher falsch.

nicht plug-and-play-fähige ISA-Erweiterungskarten


Explanation:
I propose once more my answer from 7:01 am. Of course it's also possible to say Non plug & Play ISA-Erweiterungskarten, but I think, that my answer is a little more German.
Don't write "non plug UND play", but "AND" (or "&"), because the complete phrase "plug and play" is not changed in German. You should NOT separate, because this are NO different cards. You plug them in and they "play".

sorry


Explanation:
Sorry for sending the answer twice. My answer stays the same, but I've read your question bad. Separating or not:
NEVER: ISAerweiterungskarten!
NEVER: ISAerweiterungs Karten!
BETTER: ISA Erweiterungskarten
BEST: ISA-Erweiterungskarten
"Non Plug & Play" is okay, but I would say it in German "nicht plug-and-play-fähige"

ISA Erweiterungskarte ohne Plug & Play Unterstützung


Explanation:
Erweiterungskarte must be one word as that is what it is. All the rest are just attributes that describe it more closely.
