Sandisk Standard CompactFlash More Like This Sandisk Standard CompactFlash™ ATA Memory Cards are economical and feature good performance. They are intended for general purpose usage or low resolution digital photography. CompactFlash cards with capacities greater than 2GB require FAT32 file system support. Insure your camera or device supports FAT32 before purchasing those capacities.

CompactFlash Cards are designed specifically for mass storage. They include an intelligent controller providing these key features: flash media control, a PC Card ATA (IDE) interface, and a sophisticated defect and error management system. This system is analogous to those in magnetic disk drives, completely transparent to host devices, and consumes no user data space. CompactFlash Cards are 100% compatible with consumer electronics, operating systems, utilities, and application programs supporting IDE disk drives.
