That's very interesting, I didn't know that there was a speed
difference between the two formats! Is it intrinsic in the media,
is there a URL somewhere with more technical information?
The speed issue aside, CompactFlash is apparently more widely used
on cameras and the like... I have about 250MB already in CompactFlash
cards for various uses and I'm really happy that I can just continue
to use the same format.
The format has been completely reliable for me -- I've taken well over
ten thousand photos with not a single loss (that I noticed, that is...)
(OT: here's an excellent, detailed, technical article about lossy audio
compression techniques like mp3 and RealAudio:
