    This CompactFlash to 40-pin IDE converter works as expected. I'm using it with a 2GB CF card to replace the aging and noisy hard disk in my retro PC, and everything is working great. None that I can think of. Build quality is not great but acceptable. Moreover, this converter requires a floppy power connector, so make sure your power supply has a spare ... Read more

Has worked fine in my home server for several weeks. None really Needs to be plugged directly into the motherboard. However was a bit too high for my case. Needed to make ... Read more

    Great color. UDMA signal traces are present. Pin 34 on IDE connector is connected to CompactFlash card slot, so motherboard thinks that 40-wire IDE cable is connected. This makes modes faster than UATA-33 unavailable, even if the card itself supports them. This can be fixed by desoldering pin 34 from board, connecting it to ground (i.e. pin 30) and ... Read more

    Works well, LEDs useful, Connects directly to motherboard IDE socket The card is not double CF as advertised. Interface is not the 44 PIN laptop IDE as advertised, but DX was very helpful and sent a converter. Great for building "embedded" systems likes edge routers and firewalls. Adapter is a bit tall and doesn't fit into some cases (eg. ... Read more

    -Easy to figure out -DMA-ATA 33 - totally compatible with everything IDE -Just works, plug-and-play -Mine is with one slot, and you can choose between Master and Slave - but you can plug only one into the motherboard, so it doesn't really matter/ but, might be good for various testing. -Works without power connected (IDE can supply enough power), but ...

System: Windows XP Embedded. Best emotions. Not convenient plug 5V. I had to modify the connector on the cable - a little cut one side For Russians. ????? ???? ?????????? ?? ???... Read more

    It's a single piese, with no flat cable, so no additional wires taking a place. It's more useful if you already finished your machine construction - just plug it to place, and no noodles at all. Power connector is rightly directed, not on some bottom side like SKU 711, for example. 3 LEDs (I still don't know what for, but looks nice)) Nice mechanical ... Read more
