View Full Version : Disk on Module (anyone use these before?)

10 October 2004, 03:29 AM
I came across a box of 8MB disk on module devices from a company that liquidated a long time ago. These plug directly into the IDE ports of mobo's and have 8MB's of programmable flash memory and are powered by an external plug to the PSU. They're tiny little guys and are generally used to store small installations of linux or something else for computer terminals and such. Anyway, is there any other use for these? And does anyone know how much they're worth?

ah, gotcha. Good nfo. But sadly, they don't list any pricing on the site..... i found a few links, but from what i saw, these things aren't worth that much, lol! Like, 20 bucks at most for these 8 MB modules. What kind of OS can u fit on 8MB??? Can linux or unix really be that small?
