    You may wish to consider an industrial-quality compact flash drive.  The
    CF adapter plugs in just like a drive and the I-Q CF cards come with a 5
    year warranty and testing by OpenBSD-types (who do a lot of embedded
    devices using CF cards) shows that for many uses they are very reliable.


can you give a url of the company who sell this?

CF cards are sold everywhere. You want the long-life versions. Finding adapters may be a little harder, but mail-order is probably suitable. The internet is your friend here. This was a good idea, I wish I ahd thought of it.
