Hi Matthias,

"googled" a little bit - I found:
- www.farnell.de Best.Nr.3078127
-
http://www.digikey.com/scripts/us/dksus.dll?Criteria?Ref=93365&Cat=30475099
- http://www.avxcorp.com/docs/Catalogs/cfmfb.pdf
- http://www.emulation.com/compactflash/
- http://www.cse.com.tw/pro04.htm
so far

unfortunately, cannot tell you anything regarding availibility (especially
in germany)
I don`t know, if Farnell sells for private customers.

i`m not shure - but maybe a CF card could "fit on that":

????????
If this fits, it could be cheapest solution, IMHO.

I ask my previous question again: Can we read/write fat12/16 with fat32
driver code in Rockbox ?

regards
Roland

PS:
Hey - don`t let things let look like it was YOUR idea ;)
