    Lead will not work. It is not a magnetic metal.

    Your basic choices are Iron, Nickel, and Cobalt. And alloys (e.g. steel) based on these metals.

    Re: Re: Cool new motherboard. LVDS built-in!

    Best thing to do is treat the CF card like a CD-ROM. Make it read only so you don't kill it prematurely with a bunch of unecessary writes. Any writing should be sent to the HD.
