I read about the Transcend 4GB SD as being the highest capacity SD card save venturing into openzaurus/pdaxrom territory as it is the highest capacity SD card outside of SDHC.

Okay. I'm thinking I'll buy that.

But what about CF? If I want a wireless card I'll get one--that seems easy to look up--but just for sake of more storage,


what's the highest capacity supported CF card under Cacko 1.23?


Btw, I'm on a 3200.

Also, I read something about read-speed. What's that about? Should I be concerned about it? Is it basically like a hard-drive? Etc. etc. etc.

I tried reading through the stuff on switching out the internal drive for a CF microdrive...but that gave this newb/novice quite a headache. Plus I couldn't seem to find anything definitively final.

Though, again, I'm not particularly interested at switching out the internal (I flinch just at flashing) I just want to have more storage in the CF slot.

Any thoughts?
Thanks kindly --UMG

Is this under cacko, does brand of card matter, and did you have to install any special drivers?

works under cacko, debian (andromeda), ubuntu.
no
and no.

Just works, CF uses same drivers as IDE for the most part, so the distros don't care how big the CF gets b/c the architecture doesn't change. w/ SD the spec allowed up to 2gb, 4 if you used fat32, but that wasn't in spec. SDHC uses different memory addressing to so it needs different drivers. I suspect that CF could go as large as 128GB before there might be a problem with addressing.
