    Hibernate file on CF card?

    I searched and couldn't find anything on this, but would it be possible and has anyone tried putting the hibernate file on a CF card to speed up hibernate and wake up? I would think if windows can recognize it at startup it would be a ton faster than loading from disk w/ say a 60x CF card.

    You can, if you have a CF-IDE adaptor. Then windows (and everything else) will just see it as a HDD. Without special drivers.

    BUT, CF-cards are not necessarily faster (please tell us, if you test it ) AND they only have a limited number of writes before they start slowing down (but as you only will write to it when going to hibernate, that should be ok)...

    The adapters are 20 bucks or something...

    I'm pretty sure that CF cards are much slower than HDs, something like 10,/sec read and 9meg/sec write, its not going to be faster than a hard drive

    BUT seek times are nearly 0

    Then again, for reading one big file, that won't do much, lol

    what's the read rate on a laptop drive? I know it has a burst of 100mb/s but after the cache, what's the read speed? I know a 100x CF card is 15mb/s continuous.

    I don't have to search I'm beting its more than the 100x CF card, esp for a 7200rpm drive

    CF cards are waaay slower, it's closer to a CD-ROM speed than a hard drive speed.
