compact flash ide adaptors Tags: Compact Flash Wd Raptor Hard Drives Storage Last response: January 18, 2007 12:43 PM in Storage Share jex29 January 17, 2007 11:35:01 AM :?: Has anybody used a compact flash ide adaptor (with CF) as a hard drive? It should be fast compared to a drive like the WD Raptor. It looks like a cheap alternative (albeit much lower capacity) to house just the OS and have fast boot timings. Any thoughts?

It is very fast, but the compact flash card is limited in terms of capacity and has a shorter life than a hard disk. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
