    I've also used [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] with appropriate adapter.
    Hi

    im trying the same thing, the cf i bought is this one:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    it doesnt let me install the software, im wondering if the problem is the cf or the cf adapter.

    are you sure all UDMA cards dont work ?

    thanks

What you could do, however, is a bit of handy work involving an CF-card, an adapter and some patience:

    1. Upgrade the system with an update CD (8.31 is the latest version at the moment)
    2. Replace the HD in the RT4 with an IDE-Compact Flash adaptor and a 32GB Compact Flash (CF) card
    3. Boot the RT4 and use the upgrade CD from step 1 to install. This step will create the correct partitions on the CF Card
    4. Copy everything from the old HD to your computer. It is sufficient to save the files and folders. You could save an entire disc image, if you want te be extra safe.
    5. Remove the CF card from the RT4 and attach it to your computer. Copy the files from the old HD onto the CF card. Do this for all partitions, overwriting the files that were installed by (3).
    6. Put the CF card back into the RT4 and find that it works!
    7. Party!


    Bonus is that your CF-card is pretty inexpensive to replace (You can get them as low as 10/15 dollars on eBay, as opposed to an industrial IDE 30GB HDD, which can cost you hundreds of dollars), they're very resilient (shockproof and temperatures between -25 Celsius and up to 85 Celsius) and you still have a backup drive laying around..
    Hi Frituurman

    can you post a link please to the cf card you have used for this project ?

    thanks

    I've tried several UDMA cards and none worked on my system. Maybe this is due to the fact that I have RT5. In any case I'm now using alternative solution and it works.

    Hi

    Strange because some report that they use UDMA cards and they work.
    I suppose alternative you mean ssd ?

    Thanks

    Yes I'm successfully using components in the post. Currently using mSATA cards with adapter. I didn't try with ATA SSD yet.
