[Really? I was under the impression that the SD port was actually faster than the CF one on the SL-5500.

The SD port is attached over a 1 bit interface on the SL-5500 where as the CF is attached via a 16 Bit interface. Guess what's faster

So the bottleneck really is the SD card - what's the best option for extending the caching of the SD card? Would that depend on the image I choose when I flash the Zaurus? I'm currently running 64-0 so what should I change it too... It makes sense not using the CF for caching if I want to keep it alive

Should the SD be so slow that it can't play files properly though? It seems chronically slow considering the size of the files we're talking about.
