Cons: Manufacturer says, use this adapter with a Compact Flash card and download videos and photos at warp speed. WELL paint dries faster. I used a Transcend 32GB UDMA7 card, but Windows configured it in PIO mode, NOT DMA. SLOOOOOOW..... I have seen all kinds of specs for CF cards, BUT I have yet to see one meet the advertising propaganda. Boot Windows, an utter joke. UDMA7 compatible, on which planet? I have wasted more time on CF cards for simple tasks, only to encounter yet another roadblock. They might work in a camera, but emulating an IDE drive is a nightmare, even though they supposedly meet the IDE standards. What a farce, there's always a GOTCHA, undisclosed of course.
Other Thoughts: DON'T BUY ANYTHING RELATED TO COMPACT FLASH...........READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5" IDE 44-Pin To Dual Compact Flash Adapter
Pros: Basically works.
Cons: What is said about the device is accurate, but what is NOT said is very important. If you intend to use it as a Windows system boot device, you better buy the correct type CF card, example Transcend Industrial. I bought an ordinary Transcend card. MOST CF cards identify themselves as REMOVABLE. I spent most of a weekend beating my head and countless booting until I finally got it to boot, sort of. The MyComputer display showed the system disk as REMOVABLE (NOT GOOD), which was causing all my problems. Googled the situation, and the problem was confirmed. Not sure what'll I do. Warning buy a CF card that identifies as FIXED disk, and good luck figuring out which one's are. I have discovered that ADDONICS makes a similar adapter that ALWAYS reports any and all CF cards as FIXED to windows.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model SDCZ36-016G-A11
Pros: SIZE PRICE, not much else.
Cons: Slowest thing I've ever seen. !!! Don't believe me GOOGLE it.
I rarely use, kept for disaster backup in separate location.
But when I pull from safe deposit box to recopy, it is painful
over an hour for 11GB. I can burn DVDs in half the time. Do not buy for everyday use.!!!
