Dmitry Grinberg of PalmPowerups fame has just released his latest application: PowerDrive, a utility that will allow you to use ANY Compact Flash card as a replacement for your MicroDrive.

Ever wanted to use huge CF cards in your LifeDrive? How would you like 4GB of RAM and a 28GB internal drive…? Well now you can…

PowerDrive promises to become an essential tool for any LifeDrive users out there, and Dmitry has stressed that, besides hardware risks (shorts as you remove the microdrive, etc) the software is completely safe.

As I’ve not got a lifedrive, or a card for testing, this isn’t a review so much as a public service announcement. :-D

Feel free to browse the readme.

PowerDrive is available from the PalmPowerups store.
