    Thread Revival!!!

    so did anyone ever actually do this? i was considering it and am wondering how it turned out, especially with 1 GB cards in the $60 range.

    hence the fact that i asked if anyone ever did it.....(and if you'll notice i recognized that it's so old)

    chances are slim that any of them are around here of gonna say something, but maybe someone else did it.

    if you want a fast CF install you need to get a SanDisk UltraII, ExtremeI, or ExtremeIII card.

    the new 1gb usb keyrings are fast for transfer, but its easier to use a laptop hd.

    I actually only a few month ago bought some cf to ide converters, was going to plug 2 cf cards into my raid controller, and then found how slow cf was in comparison to usb2 keyrings.

    problem was I could not find a way to raid 2 usb keyrings, so got 2 small hds and it does a continuose read of 56mbs.

    dont think cf/usb will ever beat that.

    its a good idea, but its not as fast.

    Now if somewhere you could still buy a 'hardcard' like in the old pre ide mfm days......

    an isa card with ram slots, lost all contents if powered down but boy was drive D: bloody quick!

    I see no reasone why no company could not produce a pci card / ide module with 4 ram slots to take say 4*1gb sticks, giving 4gb on a pci card with battery backup, now thats an idea.

    There's a PCI card that takes up to 4GB of RAM, is battery backed up, and has a SATA interface (instead of running directly off PCI, which means no special drivers). Many threads on this forum about it.

    emmmm........

    So if its sata, I see no reason (other than buggy sata implementation) why it wont run off idea with a converter, lots of them on ebay.
