Number of R/W before my CF card fails

Hi experts,


I'm using SanDisk CF for an embedded linux system. The problem is after couple of months of successful operation, the whole system fails. A look into log files revealed that it is because of corrupted memory sectors. What I want to know is what is the number of R/W before a CF can start to show this type of bad blocks. BTW, I use the CF as a replacement for HDD.


Any workaounds will also be appreciated, like going for a SSD, memory stick instead if CF...
