Wondering if anyone's replaced their laptop hdd with CF memory? My old laptop has a beautiful screen at 10.1" 1280x800, so I want to keep using it.
But the hdd is driving me nuts, it's one of those 1.8" HDD, which after years of abuse (probably due to damaged sectors) have steadily slowed down to a crawl, it's currently doing in the range of 2 to 10MB/s.
Hence the idea of using a CF-> IDE converter and a CF card.
However I come across some sites saying things like you need to make sure CF card is bootable, and I just don't see it in CF card's specification, plus unsure about whether the converter will impact on the speed..
Anyone's done it? What components did you buy? and how was the performance?
(I'm pretty sure anything will beat 2-10MB/s, but just in case..)
