Revision as of 22:39, 26 July 2008

Results of attempts to use various flash media as drives in Macs. Other media types can be included (ie IDE on SCSI adapters, etc.)

Please copy and paste the blank line at the bottom, then enter your data above it. That way everyone will have a template they can use.

If you have a full page of test results with speeds etc, please link it, for now.

Bunsen


Please try to use consistent names for models of Mac, adapters, media, software etc, as this will help with table sorting.

Notes

  1. In device table, SCSI Probe, System Profiler, Drive Setup, on desktop - anywhere really
  2. As shown in Apple System Profiler or other hardware diagnostic
  3. unless shown, version matches OS
  4. Using flash for virtual memory is debated
  5. Will try in a 16 bit slot and see if it helps (ie in a 1400)
  6. OS 9 ASP v2.6.3: PC Card 2 ID = 0 Hard drive Driver version: 3.2.8 Mac OS partitions: 2 Removable media: No Vendor: Seagate Revision number: 06.12.06 Product ID: Flash 7.4.0 Serial number: STI J17e506230194837 Size: 1 GB Capacity: 977.48 MiB OS X ASP v3.0.1 Model:TXN,PCI1210-00 Vendor:104c Device:ac1e
  7. Bad blocks, many failed installs, attempted repairs. One apparently successful install: volume still not available in Startup Disk
  8. 8.0 8.1 8.2 Data obtained with Apple System Profiler v. 1.3.2. Apple System Profiler v. 2.6.3 crashes on a Power Book 1400 with Mac OS 9.2.2, but v. 1.3.2 is quite usable.
  9. 9.0 9.1 9.2 9.3 To prevent auto eject of the PCMCIA card on shutdown/restart install Mac OS 8.1 directly onto the CF card, without driver update. Copy desired System version to the card, afterwards. Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name "auto_eject_prevention" defined multiple times with different content
  10. Type: harddisk, Bus: ATA Bus, ID: 0, Capacity: 122.2 MB, Vendor: Hitachi XX.V.3.3.0.0, Product ID: -, Revision: Rev. 0.00, Connection: ATA, Removable: N (in fact the medium IS marked as removable at boot time), Partitions: 1
  11. In this setup I use the CF card exclusively for VM, to round out the inbuilt amount of DRAM.
  12. VM works, but drive is not cold bootable as it is not recognised by ROM driver.
  13. Type: PC Card, Bus: PC Card, ID: 0, Capacity: 3,7 GB, Vendor: Memory Card Adapter, Product ID: -, Revision: 67281306, Connection: ATA, Removable: Y, Partitions: 1
