The slower the microdrive (flash card) the less pictures you can take in a row.
I had this problem several times while shooting a model in action.
I must admit that I shoot a lot in sequence since I switched to digital.
When the camera buffer is full the camera stops working.
There is no other choice but to wait untill more pictures are written to the medium.
I's frustrating for both the model and photographer.
The next card I buy will be the fastest available.

I believe write speed to be very important. It can be negated somewhat if there is a large image buffer. The image buffer will clear faster if the write speed is higher. Fashion and sports photography benefits the most from the higher write speed. Write speed seems to be camera dependent. The price gap for Lexar and Transcend cards seems to be narrowing. It is interesting that the new Canon 10D does not appear to very fast in comparison to the Nikon D100 that appears to be optimized for the Lexar WA technology. One would hope future firmware upgrades maybe able to address this speed issue.
