finally, I managed to finish all the tests with my own cards. It looks like the 8MB SmartMedia card stopped working properly, but I think that card does not matter much for my overview. I will add the missing test results with the borrowed cards later.


One important change: I removed the test results for the CF only card readers where I used an adapter. I will do separate tests for the adapters, so the overview will not cause confusion about the supported media types. The only exception will be the test results for the Toshiba PCMCIA harddisk, since these show the performance of the CF interface and the power supply for the CF cards.

I added test results for the 1GB RiData 45x SD card that I bought recently. Big mistake: The 45x card reads at about 33x and writes at about 20x. So be very careful with unknown media, even if the same manufacturer has other media with proper test results (as, for example, the RiData 52x CF).
