Sorry to dig an old thread up -- I know it's bad manners -- but this thread was the reason I joined this forum. I found it looking up info on how to stuff a CF card into my A-11, and Google sent me here. I've ordered a PCMCIA/CF adapter, but I still have one question: is there a limit to the size of a Compact Flash card that an A-11 can access? ...No, make that two questions: what is the limit? (A simple 'yes' answer wouldn't be all that helpful.) I think it may be 1 gig, but then again, I've seen clues that it might be 2 gig. (Or maybe I'm wrong completely and it's waaaay lower -- this is 1997 technology, after all.)
Anyway, I just wanted to see if anyone here knew. Then we can lay this moldy, shambling old thread to rest again. Remember: when shooting zombies, aim for the head. If you disable the head, you disable the thread that came back from the dead, thus putting it back to bed.
I have once inserted a borrowed 1GB SD card into a CF adapter and inserted that into PCMCIA adapter and loaded it into my Cassiopeia A11. I was able to open a few text files from the card. I did not have time to try it out. The only thing that interested me back then was if a CF-PCMCIA adapter was useable. I have purchased an old third-hand 32MB CF card. Oh ... THAT was something. The memory size increased 7fold. I was able to allocate all staggering 3.8MB of RAM exclusively to Word (I used that as an e-book reading program). No more splitting text files to 200KB chunks. I was able to load up 30 books. What a luxury!

By the way. After a full hard reset you have to update the firmware. Otherwise your dear Cassiopeia A-11A eats your batteries in a day even when switched off. I was usually able to get up to 11 hours of reading from a pair of 2000mAh NiMH AA accumulators.
I am talking about THE oldest version here. The one that came with MS Windows CE 1.0. The worst OS ever released by MS.
