Subject: Re: HDD with NO moving parts?
From: Joseph Jones (joe_at_bumpycarrot.cjb.net)
Date: 2004-06-30


Not strictly compact flash, but there are 4GB microdrives, that for all
intents and purposes may as well be CFs. Whether they have moving parts
or not, I don't know, but they're designed for movement, a fair bit more
than our 2.5" HDDs were I'll bet.

The best way to get them is in Creative Nomad Muvo 4 MP3 players, since
they're cheaper than the actual drives/cards.
