Default MagicStor MD & S7000

:?:

It can be too late, but ......... I will ask.

I placed an order for a Magicstor 2.2GB Microdrive for my Fuji S7000 camera. I hope to have enough space for at least 1000 photos @ 6MP. Its price is only $178, good deal ... I guess.

My "too late" questions are: ops:

- Is this a good and reliable microdrive?
- Should I pay more and buy the IBM/Hitachi?
- Is somebody using this combination (S7000 and the Magicstor)? Good or Bad?

Thanks a lot!! I hope that I made a good purchase. :?:

That is a good price. I paid more than that for an IBM 1 GB dirve and I paid close to cost.

Hi,

Thanks all for replying. I am sure now that I had a great deal.

My questions again.

Is this a good and reliable microdrive?
Anyone using this MD with the S7000? Good or bad?

Thanks again.

BTW the lowest cost/MB champion however is still to get the Muvo2 MP3 player, or the iPod MINI!

Hi guys,

I got the Magicstor Microdrive. Initially, I had some problems formatting it with the camera, but after that it has been working like a charm.

My only concern is that it gets hot like hell :evil: . I believe that this is normal for microdrives. I hope.

Thanks,
