Are you talking about the IBM microdrives?

I use it exclusively (I already have two), and downloaded it daily to my MindStor (another rotating media) on week long vacation trips. Although they are very reliable, and will survive a drop, they can not go to high altitude of 10,000ft or more. A plane is OK since it's pressurized

... The only problem is the 170/340Mb is of older design and would draw more power as well as slower accesses (faster start-up though). An OEM 1g Iomega microdrive could be gotten @ Ritz for only $249 with 3 time the capacity (a little less when mail ordered)

Default NHL do u know...

Do you know if the old 170/340mb will work in the newer cameras, say a new Canon G2? I have a old Casio QV 3000ex. Someday I may get a Canon and wondered if the 340mb microdrive out of the Casio would work??

They all should work since they all must abide to the CF+ standard! I just think that the 512/1G is of a newer design and is more economical on power that's all, but $100 is a real bargain!
