This adapter allows you to add IDE storage to an older device that is used in harsh environments (e.g. high temperatures, high-vibration, risk of shock or droppage) and so requires storage that is more stable and resilient.
With this adapter, you can connect a Compact Flash (CF) card to the 2.5″ 44 pin IDE interface in your laptop drive tray.
The CF device will appear as a normal disk drive to your operating system.
This adapter utilises a 44-wire IDE cable (not supplied). Power is taken from the 2.5″ drive connector.
