I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using large-capacity caompact flash cards on the new SL-6000. Can the Zaurus support the new 4GB cards?

I had a SL-5500 that had to have the cards formatted in FAT16. To the best of my knowledge, that will maximize capacity to 2GB. If it accepts FAT32 formatting, it should support the 4GB card.

My company wants to stay away from MicroDrives (due to higher power consumption) and are really interested in the 4GB CF cards. If anyone has had any experience, I would greatly like to hear about it.

I saw that seagate have promised a 12GB cf-shape microdrive.

I keep saying to myself that the next size increment will then give me a drive big enough to be useful to carry around lots of my MP3 collection and some movies, and by the time the next drive comes along, my demands for storage have also gone up!

When there's a 40GB, then it should be enough... or maybe I should hold out for an 80?

Do your homework, if 40 GB CF were available, what will be the cost.

I think that I better get a 40 GB low-end light-weight notebook and partition its drive into a Windows XP and a Linux format.
