486 notebooks nd CF cards...

Postby StaffelGuard1917 » 2019-11-18 @ 15:34

Hi, people ! Had issue with a 486DX4-100 Compq Contura 430cx notebook - it was hanging when adressing HDD. One kind person agreed to re-solder its HDD conector, even without asking money for it. After that it was hanging with Trndscend 2gb x133 card. I tried another card, old 512mb Kingstone (bought once with Canon 20D camera). Once I've seen a discussion in the internet that some CF cards don't work quite well with 486 systems and some work fine. I use adapter IDE->CF. Can anyone share the expirience of using CF cards and such machines ?
