The new Lacie Orange 8GB is quite cheap and contains a 8 GB hitachi microdrive. Does anyone know whether it is crippled to work in ide mode only or does it still work in cf mode and can be dissassembled to be placed inside a Zaurus?

I know for sure that 8GB Memorex USB drive has crippled Seagate microdrive inside.
It kinda shows up in cardctl ident but it is impossible to read/write.
Oh well, I have 8GB usb drive now.
It seems that since this big 4GB MuVo craze all new players and USB driver use crippled microdrives that only have IDE/ATA mode, no CF mode.
