This review is from: Silicon Power Superior 32GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model SP032GBCFC1K0V10
Was trying to find a way to get SSD into an old IDE laptop. Found some SSDs, but never heard of the name brand & they didn't seem to have a high spec speed.
Found following adapter to use a SD card instead.
SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5" IDE 44-Pin To Dual Compact Flash Adapter
Of coarse I didn't achieve the speeds as advertized.
Win XP sp3 Fat32
Bios recognized as: UDMA Mode: Mode 5 (100mb max xfer)
HD Tach benchmark on SD card:
Peak 53.7mb, avg 50.6mb, random access .4ms
HD Tach benchmark on old 7200rpm HD: Crashes during tests, so no results.

Didn't benchmark past 16k on HD as speed didn't increase.
Didn't benchmark past 512k on SD card as speed didn't increase.
I read somewhere that it might be better to leave the FAT table to FAT32 as that is how the SD card's hardware was tweaked for & shipped as. This is why I didn't go to NTFS. I don't know how true this is, since you can read anything on the inet & not be true.
