just found an a place to get an ide to compact flash drive card.
i have a nice 128er card and thought i could get a small version of w98 crammed on the thing.
just wondered about the power requirements and read/write time for w98 on a compact flash.
just thought it might be nice to have a soild state webplayer system.
bada bing, bada KABLAMO!
RE:compact flash hard drive in the player? (modified 0 times)
It works. It is much slower than a hard drive. It is similar in speed to the DOC. One issue with a solid-state compact flash card is that the maximum number of writes to a location on the card is much lower than that of a hard drive. You will need to turn off virtual memory to minimize writing to the card. Unfortunately windows seems to always be writing various files, so I am uncertain what kind of lifetime you can expect. I am using a 144MB DOC, which "gets around" the write problem by rearanging the location of data to minimize the number of writes to a given location. I don't know how well that works, either.
