Does using a Memory Stick Pro Duo with an adapter for Compact Flash make DSLR capture slower?

I just ordered an adapter which lets me use a memory Stick Pro Duo in my Sony A300 Compact Flash slot and I was wondering if that would affect my speed in recording pictures at all (in comparison to directly using a Compact Flash that is).

Thank you in advance for your answer!

It depends.

The adapter won’t speed up or slow down anything.

However, things could be slower if the Pro Duo Card is a slower speed card than a given Compact Flash Card. Both types have a rating. Either using X terms like 80x or 100x, 166 etc. or using MB (megabytes) per second.
