This defeats the whole purpose of using CF cards -- the fact that
the device has no "unreliable" rotating media.

If you put IBM/Fujitsu MicroDrives in there, you might as well
put a real hard drive in a real computer, since that will likely have
a longer lifespan than a tiny fragile little CFII MicroDrive.
