I'm a newbie in digital photography. Is the IBM 1GB microdrive robust or reliable to use, since I heard it is a vulnerable to shakes, etc? Better to use CF cards? Do the different brands matter?
Hmmm, if so, I'm thinking of getting a 256MB one. Any recommended place to buy it?
So many questions...but really appreciate it. Thanks!!!

Been using the IBM MD for the past 5 months on an iPAQ and a digital cam. So far no problem with it, but be warned that it is power hungry. Drained your battery dry in no time.
I noticed that writing to the MD is MUCH slower than to the CF.
Purchased the IBM 340 MB at SGD 200 (2nd hand) and the IBM 1 GB at SGD 550 (new from SLS) in Dec 2001. Checkout www.hardwarezone.com for the best deal.
NB: Cant get WinXP to detect it when used with the pcmcia adaptor. No problem with Linux.
