Are you sure on this point? I just switched from a normal 2.5" IDE drive
in my laptop to a compact flash card using an IDE<->CF adaptor. Are you
referring to USB memory sticks (which might inhibit the same technology)
or to CF cards as well? 
Now that i am so happy having a completely silent laptop, i might run
into read/write errors soon....
