    Anyone tried one of these? I ordered one Friday for $260 for use in my 10D.

    Is there any more news on these things? The price for 2.2GB microdrive is
    fabulous at less than $200, and even with shipping you can get one from a half
    dozen places on the web for less than $210.

    Considering that I go thru 1GB cards like popcorn with my S2 Pro (shooting RAW)
    it'd be really nice to have something with more capacity...

    I even found a Magicstor 4.8 GB drive, but I'm thinking my S2 wouldn't format
    it... Am I correct that the S2 Pro formats in FAT16, and thus is limited to
    2GB?

    But less important than 4.8GB is NOT losing important images (and until I get
    'em home and throw 'em out they're ALL important). SO, are lots of people
    finding that these overheat or have some other UNDESIRABLE characteristics?

    Actually I'm kind of surprised that there aren't a TON of notes in various
    newsgroups if these things have the major problems spoken of here...
