If its to make a tiny little RAID that looks just like a regular Xserve RAID then the SD cards will work fine, but I'm pretty sure you won't be pleased with its performance regardless of whether you split them up over several PCI cards.
Yes it is for that, and performance isn't really an issue. What parts would I need to do that and where can I get them?
You are going to need as many sd cards as you want, you will also need a reader for each one. If you are going to use it with a mini, the you will need a usb 2.0 powered hub that has the amount of ports that you need. Now if you are going to put in a tower, I suggeest a usb 2.0 Pci card with at least four ports. If you are going to have more than four sd readers, then you can add hubs to that. This sounds like a neat idea, but it also sound ungodly expensive. Why not just raid some 1.8" hds? That would be small too and be faster. Make sure to post a mod guide if I didnt say that before. Good luck and have fun with it. -maestro
:silly: FIXM I gave you a karma point for longest post ever<br><br>Post edited by: krusher117, at: 2005/12/18 21:49
YEAH! My first karma point on MacMod... 8-} Now, how many karma points do I need to collect before a mysterious shadowy figure who some people call "Steve" just on a whim happens to send me a brand new sparkley G6 just to see how I like it? heh..
(PS Don't tell anyone the longest post ever was originally twice as long, but I edited it down to half the original length when I decided it was wayy too long. Yup, whacked er back like a nasty little thorny hedge and hit submit. Poor submit... Such violence.. I don't know what came over me...) @='O
My first karma point was negative, and I don't know why
