    not really AV related but too good a bargain to miss...

    apparently you can simply remove the microdrive from the hard drive as well and use it in cameras, etc that support microdrive (CF type II). although don't quote me on that and check the formats your camera supports first.

    Hi Guys,

    sorry to be a misery guts about this, but you can buy a 40GB USB HD on ebay for about the same money - at first glance it did look like a good find though.

    I'd like to see you slot that into your digital camera :D

    A magicstor 2.2G microdrive would cost you more than £50 even on ebay. more with a USB enclosure.

    Noticed the seller is in the channel islands...not sure if that matters. I've heard of stuff from 7dayshop (also CI) attracting duty or something?

    This is 1/2 the price from similar products elsewhere!

    And the T&C say that it is a VAT inclusive price.

    I am giving one a go, but I can see it being used for MP3 playback, data transfer and my camera - so a couple more may be worth buying at this price.

    I've bought from them before with no problems. I would use them again and may do with this!

    Thanks

    Has anyone figured out how to open the case without marking/damaging it?

    The instructions say to use the drive in a horizontal position! So I wonder if it can be used in cameras and mp3 players?

    remove the 2.2GB sticker on the side and then you can see the clip that needs to be pressed in.

    Hmm, I hope I haven't led you guys astray. I learnt about this deal on a Canon camera forum. Latest response there states that this hard drive does not have a separate useable CF drive in it.
    Here is the thread here.

    Surely some enterprising person can figure a way of converting this back to a CF connector?

    :lease:

    Apologies, but I was only passing on what I thought was a good deal.
    :oops:
    Can always sell them on for a profit on Ebay. :blush:
