I was pondering HDD and CD/DVD use on the CF-29 and have these two questions:
Question 1: What is the largest HDD that can be installed in a Series III CF-29 and a Series II CF-29, and other than changing it out of the carrier, is there anything else that I’ll need to do besides re-imaging the disk?
The largest PATA 2.5" HDD that is still available if the Western Digital Scorpio 320 GB. I am running one on my CF-29. If you are running XP or later, you should have no problems seeing it all as one partition. However, frankly, I like to set up my drives with two as a minimum to keep the bulk of my data separate from my Operating System in case I need to do a reinstall and to minimize the amount of space that mush be defragged.
Question 2: Is there an aftermarket R/W DVD drive that can be used in the existing CD/DVD carrier to get the ability to R/W DVDs?

I have a Genuine Panasonic 24X CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive Model UJDA750 for sale over at NBR. It is a drop in and requires no modifications
, however it is just a DVD Player with CD R/W. http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=449266
