You're correct, the poster didn't say Seagate hence I automatically assume it was just any pocket device... My wrong!

Yes, I have tried, and it is definitely NOT a CompactFlash-compatible MicroDrive. The 5GB drive inside the Pocket is the ATA variant of the ST-1 - meaning that it does NOT have CF pins, but a ribbon cable coming directly out of the drive package instead. Stick with the Carbon/Muvo.

Here's an illustration from the tech specs for the ST-1: (The drive in the Pocket Drive appears to be the Flex, or ATA/IDE, variant.)

before running out and destroying a RIO try this:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...MP=OTC-17exta6

all it is is a 5gb ST1 in a ATA/USB2 housing. a little cheaper to rip apart i think.

I have a Seagate 5GB and a MUVO Hitachi 4GB microdrive. I'd recommend the Hitachi instead of the Seagate-- it's faster, and might also consume less power and be more reliable. Hitachi has recently reduced their prices, and you can find them retail for under $200.

E.g. http://shop.pexagontech.com/index.asp

The Seagate 5GB Pocket Hard Drive does not have the 5GB CF drive in it, it uses the 5GB Flexdrive which only has a ribbon cable - no CF connector and pins!

I recently readareview of the Seagate against both a 4gb Hitachi and GS Magicstor 2.2gb microdrives thatkinda showed the Seagate in the performance lead... although they weren't "in camera" tests....check it out over at X-bit labs for the review.
