Hitachi 4GB Compact Flash Drive $188

Here’s the deal. Buy this 4GB MP3 Player from Dell Home for $188 delivered. The following link:


goes to some guy’s website where he shows how he opened it up to extract the drive. Why? Well, because it’s a Hitachi 4GB Compact Flash II Microdrive! And he put it in his digital camera, had the camera reformat the drive and (badabing badaboom!) he was off and running! The drive itself, not even available yet, will cost around $400-500.
