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? Jex More about : compact flash ide adaptors evongugg a b G Storage January 18, 2007 12:43:56 PM I use a IDE compact flash adaptor on a Linux computer acting as a router/firewall/gateway. 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 !
