I don't like the idea of CF or SD at all. I'd pretty much prefer PATA or
SATA, because ...

... I have tons of PATA and SATA drives. Real drives are also much more
reliable than flash drives, and the noise isn't an issue at all. Modern
drives just don't make any noise when used in a PDP-11 (or whatever
UNIBUS or QBUS system) ;-)
BTW the problem with Fujitsu Eagle SMD drives is that they need a complete
lowlevel format from time to time. *All* Eagle drives I have, have
developed bad sectors that can't be read without errors even with
microstepping and other tricks.
