Considering the normally run ~$120, that is an insanely good deal. Some people may object to it being refurbished, though.

I got two of them... don't work in the zaurus...

Printed on the back it says "for embedded applications only"

Trying one of those CF to IDE adapters and fool with it that way. Big headache for a 10$ 5gb microdrive...

Also.. its closer to 4.5gb...

wow ---I was going to get one myself here shortly mad.gif

I'm sorry sad.gif , they made it sound like it was directly compatible with a cf slot--as they stated an instance with a camera mad.gif

Word, they made it out like it would work, but it doesn't. They also listed it as the wrong size... tempted to send it back. So far I've not had a good experience geeks.com

But it's cool collectek ; )


Edit: both drives stopped working, they wont spin up :/
