Integrated CF slot (Type II)

by munsey / August 15, 2004 8:29 AM PDT

bob, what does that mean exactly? i know type I and type II have different physical qualities...ones thicker than the other...but what does that mean for me when buying more memory. I checked the websites, but i'm not sure if sandisk or lexar have that kind of cf. im thinking about purchasing the ipaq hx4705. it also has an sd card slot for expansion, but sd cards tend to have smaller sizes memory wise. what do you suggest? are there 2gb cf type II cards?

I can't explain words that marketing places on literature.

Your PDA vendor/support must tell you what maximums you can use. But the largest consumer SD Card out there is 1GB and you can get disk drives in CF form.

cf is probably the way im going to go. one last question: can you tell me the difference between a regular cf card and the microdrive ones (cf type II mostly)? hitatchi has the microdrives that actually work like hard drives. they seem to be cheaper- more gb/$.

"an you tell me the difference between a regular cf card and the microdrive ones (cf type II mostly)?"

The concept is that the user should not be able to tell if it was flash or drive based if they did it right. So the result is there is no difference. As to the $ per GB, that changes over the years so you have to measure it at the time of purchase.

the only difference between a microdrive cf card and flash cf card is the microdrive has moving parts. so if you drop it you could ruin it but the non-micro card would be just fine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
