Yes it should work. The 888E is the 8887 or 8886 depending on the color of the label on the bottom of the machine. There's green and red (pink), but I'm forgetting which is which (I'm at work, so don't have my 8887 to solve this).
Now, I say SHOULD work because I do not know first-hand if it does. I was going to get one of these when they came out, but never did (I have an Epox Mini-Me "server" that has a multi-card reader, so I didn't need it on the laptop).
