As many of you are aware, I've been trying for about a year and a half now
to use CF cards with my -current laptop.
My problems were:
* SanDisk ImageMate (SDDR-05-01): No drivers, no support, SanDisk
just slapped a label on it and couldn't tell me anything due to an
* CF<->PCMCIA adapter: Semi-reliable hangs trying to access disks,
using CardBus, or not even powering up the card, using PCMCIA.
Anyway, I haven't tested the PCMCIA stuff recently. But I got a new SanDisk
ImageMate, and it works fine. The new one is model SDDR-31, and they seem
to sell them at Target, Best Buy, and many online stores. Beware; Target
in my area has the -31 on display, but only had the -05 in stock.
The -05 has a pair of LED's, and is sort of hump shaped. The -31 is much
thinner, and only has one LED. The -05 has an eject button; the -31 doesn't.
Hope this is useful to someone.
