Replace an iPod mini HDD

Great plug and play replacement for the iPod mini's Achilles heel, the fragile moving parts hard drive. The pinout for the iPod mini's Microdrive is the same as for CompactFlash, though the card needs to have true IDE compatibility, not all do. This one does and it connects to the mini's hard drive cable with no adapters or anything else needed, quadrupled the original 4GB storage capacity to boot. The 32 GB version of this same card also works in this application.


Most Liked Negative Review


Will never trust again

I used this card only a handful of times before it gave me an error. Fortunately I was able to recover my images, but every camera I've attempted to use it in since has said CARD ERROR. I don't think I'll ever trust this brand again. I've never had issues with my other cards.

work perfect on Canon 5D Mk1


from Concord Twp.  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Perfect on Canon 5D Mk1. Shows 860 picture in raw.


Best card for the money.


from Pine Island, MN  -  Professional

I do alot of studio and sports photography. Upload and down load are fast. I have used Kingston for years and my first cars is still working.


Works great, I use several of these


from kirksville MO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I've taken hundreds of thousands of photos on this model of card, and they work fine. Never had one fail.


Excellent performance every time!


from Dalton, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I shoot a lot of bracketed shots with my Canon 50D and use the Kingston CF16GB (or other Kingston card sizes) exclusively. They process my RAW files quickly. Never had a single problem with them in the past five years and shooting hundreds of shots each outing.


Works fine in my Canon EOS 40D


from Birmingham, AL

I bought a used Canon EOS 40D, and needed a compact flash card. This 16GB card works just fine!


Good Card - Good Price


from Charlotte, NC  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have about 8 of the Kingston 16 GB CF cards. Never had a problem.




from florida  -  Professional

These be a great value. And they are as long as you dont try to stick them in a D4s. After going back n forth with Kingston regarding them "supposed to" work with the d4s, and them sending me two new ones...that also dont work...I wrote this.


Great product at a great price.


from Summit, NJ  -  Professional

I do not shoot in massive bursts. If I did I might consider a faster card. Have had many Kingston cards without any problems and I take approximately 64,000 images a year.


great compact flash card


from Sacramento, CA  -  Semi Pro

I use this card with my D2X and D200 cameras. They work great and never had any problems with them.


Best Compact Flash Card


from Sacramento, CA  -  Semi Pro

I have bought quite a few of Kingston 16GB CFC's and fpund them to be reliable. I like this size for the photos I am taking. I have about 8 of these 16GB cards. I prefer this size since I feel if I were to purchase a really large capicity CFC, then if something should happen to the card , it would be a big loss.
