How big is the HD? Is it worth replacing it with flash? I purchased an
IDE-CF adapter off ebay recently for about $12 (pack of 3). Just one thing
to bear in mind, it's probably cheap because it uses a lower level
transfer method than the flash is capable of. For example, I tried a
Sandisk 4GB Extreme III card which is capable of sustained write rates of
25MB/sec with a suitable reader, but via the IDE-CF adapter it only
achieved about 3-4MB/sec. I was going to use it as a swap drive until I
got some more RAM but at that speed it was pointless.
