Compact Flash memory cards are small mass storage devices. About the size of a matchbook, these solid state drives provide reliable, removable mass storage for portable devices such as cameras and PDAs. MicroDrives are hard disks that have applications similar to Compact Flash cards and are designed to fit into a CF Type II slot.
The Compact Flash to SATA Adapter is ideal for use with a laptop or with selected Aleratec HDD Duplicator s. It converts a Compact Flash memory card (Type I/II) or IBM Microdrive media to a low power, high performance 2.5” SATA hard drive. It supports any size compact flash card up to 2TB.
The Compact Flash to SATA Adapter allows your CF memory card to be the primary boot device containing the operating system and applications. It supports DMA and Ultra DMA. It supports Windows, Mac, and Linux. No drivers are needed.
The Aleratec Compact Flash to SATA Adapter makes it possible, using compatible Aleratec hard drive duplicators, to duplicate Compact Flash memory cards or IBM MicroDrives. It is also possible, using this adapter and a compatible Aleratec hard drive duplicator, to copy from a CF Memory Card or IBM MicroDrive to a SATA disk, or vice versa.
