    I have a Pismo with a 10GB drive and I'm running out of space, so I'm just wondering what is the best option to upgrade.

    I have read that a you can install compact flash cards (maybe one 32GB card) as a drive using an adaptor like this, but that there might be problems with the Pismo reading a compact flash card? Although this should give a speed increase over a standard drive?

    Or I could just install a standard harddrive. But both these options would require opening up the Pismo and the possibility of making a cock up!

    Thanks for any replies

    Those comuters us SSD (Solid State Disk). Those drives are very expensive.
    I say your best move is to move all your stuff thats on it to an external and just start storing on the external. Western Digital Makes these little 2.5" externals that fit right in your pocket. They are reasonably priced also. Hope this helps!
