UDMA 6 CompactFlash

SynchroTech has announced the CFFire800, a FireWire 800-based CompactFlash Drive Read-Writer. The device uses UDMA Mode 6 (ULTRA ATA/133), and features purported read speeds of up to 43MBs with Lexar's new UDMA 300X and 39MBs with SanDisk's Extreme IV CompactFlash cards. It requires no drivers on supported Macintosh or Windows systems and plugs into 9-pin FireWire 800 (1394b) ports. It also utilizes bus power, requiring no external adapter. The reader supports various CompactFlash standards, including PIO Modes 1-4, DMA Modes 0-2, and UDMA Modes 0-6. It uses a single CompactFlash slot for CompactFlash Type I and II including Hitachi Microdrives and other CFII+ rotating media. The CFFire800 is priced at $60, with an optional CompactFlash Type I to 16-bit PC Card Type I/II Adapter for $26.
