Next, you need to know whether your 40/160 camera is also a 25d/100d camera. Some are some aren't. The Bauer's for instance aren't. For it to be a 25/100 it must have a filter notch reading pin. having this pin is no guarantee that it is a 25/100 camera though.
You also need to bear in mind that neither Pro8 nor Wittner notch their 100d carts as 100d (in my experience). If you are in Australia, buy your carts from me as I re-notch my suppliers carts correctly. If you need to check the notching on your 100d carts, compare them to a Kodak Plus-x cart (7265 - not the old 50asa plus-x).
Remember, if the cart doesn't push the speed pin in, then its reading it as the higher of the speeds the camera has. Then if their is a filter notch reading pin the camera MIGHT but only MIGHT be able to read the film as 100d, else it will read it as 160d
