in some cases SD card to IDE adapters can be more reliable then CF card to IDE;
i use SD-IDE adapters in my vintage IBM/PC's (386,486) after having issues with the CF-IDE adapters

Both sd and cf cards are not made for that.cf cards have gotten expensive these days. You might wanna look into m2 to ide adapters and use a ssd.

Good To Know Being That Most SD Cards go up to 512 GB  Starting at $61  and I see a 1 TB SSD on Amazon for $99  Might want to try it on My other PPC MM with OSX Tiger.. But My 32 GB SD Card is Working Fine for Now.
