im getting a cl3200 to replace my tired jornada 720, but i have reservations about microdrives.

i did a search and found some info on replacing the micro drive with a larger micro drive but nothing on a cf replacement. i have several questions:

is their any reason i should shy away from replacing the 6gig mcd with an 8gig cf and running cacko?

is the lowered power consumption and faster load times of a cf card really worth the time/expense/risk?

do i really need to worry about micro drive failure?

if anyone could answer these questions and provide some detailed information on exactly how to install a new cf card that would be wonderful.

i use mandriva linux so doing linux partitions are within my abilities.

The force required to kill a microdrive will render the Zaurus to dust. Microdrives also don't lose data size over time like cf cards will.

thanks for the fast reply.

that is very good to know. i hear horror stories about laptop hds failing and such, but i guess with the smaller moving mass the micro drive is more robust.
