the plot thickens...
while I was wandering around on the web, I noticed this little ad for an IOMEGA 1 gb microdrive with adapter for $103 and $111.

http://half.ebay.com/cat/buy/prod.cg...9380&gateway=1

how does the IOMEGA drive compare with the IBM drive? :?

It's OEMed from IBM (ie made by IBM with a private label).

Be careful, I was going to buy it myself, but the fine prints say 340Mb which is a regular price (and not the 1G in the title)! :evil: :evil: :evil:

thnx NHL...
kind of misleading that they did that.

I'm planning to go camping in 30 - 40 degree weather.
will the microdrive work under those temperatures or is a CF better suited for the job?

Farenheit? I took my camera skiing several times with no problem. Going into a warm lodge is more of a problem though since the camera would fog up, but other than that they are still spinning... :lol:

BTW my microdrives have been to +100F carribean sands too! 8) 8) 8)
