HOW-TO setup a bootdisk on CF

Pros: n/a

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: These chips have a finite life for writing. If you are going to run your OS
off this chip, you should minimize/prevent unnecessary writes.

I cannot inform you how-to configure Microsoft OSes. IMHO, their file system design is so disorganized that they didn't configure folders/directories to be read-write or read-only.

I CAN tell you how to configure a Linux or BSD system to use this CF chip with a Syba SATA2CF or IDE2CF controller. If you follow these suggested configs, your chip should last years like mine ( >3 1/2 years )

1) set noatime for the root partition in /etc/fstab for mounts, to prevent writing the last-access time in the files inode table for every file i/o.

2) move /var, move /tmp, and move /home all to another partition on a true RMS disk drive. These directories all receive too many writes. Then, your root partition will contain the mostly read-only directories like /usr, /bin, /sbin, /lib, /mnt, /dev, /etc, /opt, /root, /sys

to NeoAmsterdam with the DEAD CF

Comments: Neo... on your dead-after-2-mos chip: did you turn down most writes? These chips have a finite life for writing. If you are going to run your OS off this chip, you should: 1) set noatime for the root partition in the fstab for mounts, to prevent writing the last-access time for every file i/o. 2) move /var and /home to another partition on a RMS drive... too many writes. If you do those suggested configs, your chip should last years like mine (3 1/2 years)

Fine while it lasted

Comments: I bought this CF card for use as a boot/root drive in an embedded system. Installing the OSs was painfully slow, but it was responsive enough as a boot/root drive.

It took 90 minutes to install FreeDOS with source code and almost four hours to install Fedora 14 with a full development compliment (GCC, Eclipse, MySQL, Apache, and MediaWiki; no swap). The CF card was running fine as a primary drive; a bit slower than I would have liked, but otherwise perfectly fine.

Then, after about two months of use, the CF card dropped dead. I have no idea what caused it to fail - All I know is that all the data it held is gone (good thing I had backups) and that the card won't work anymore.

Cons: none

Don't believe the speed hype

Pros: Worked out of the box in my Rebel XTi and the 7d I rented for a week. Ran into the buffer once on the 7d and haven't yet on my XTi, both shooting raw+jpg. No read errors.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Do your research! There is WAY too much misinformation on the internet about card speeds and recording HD video. After doing my own research, I purchased this card with confidence that it would perform. It did that and then some. 1080-30p recorded without a hiccup across several videos in varying lengths from ~30sec to several minutes.

Yes, if you've spoiled yourself with keeping your camera on burst mode, you -will- run into buffer issues with this card. It's the nature of the beast, you're not paying for a high speed card (keeping your camera in burst mode won't help you get better shots; I'm looking at you, armchair photographer!). Pro's shouldn't even be considering this card, esp. the sports/action type.

For casual/nautre/lanscape shots and the occasional video, this card does the job and does it well, for quite an affordable price.
