Style Name: IDE to Dual CF Verified Purchase
I bought this one to build an alternative solid-state hard drive for my dated laptop. It came in fast before Christmas so that I could try it out. I expected it to be plug and play. But to my surprise it did not work out of box. There was no way I could fit it into any of my hard drive compartments on any of my laptops; It always protruded out by between 1/8" and 1/4". Finally I figured it out that the PCB board underneath the pins was too long that it blocked the access;the opening of the chassis hosting the adapter was too narrow; In addition, the 10th pin had to be removed so as to adapt to the laptop's standard IDE interface. After fixing it, it started to work like a charm.

I would say that fixing all these problems does take some twists even for a DIY-er like myself, let alone one knows nothing about computer hardware repair. Such problems could be easily avoided even at the design phase. To an average customer, the expense spent on fixing it is even more than the cost of the product itself.

I believe people are willing to pay more for ease-of-use. Though I like the product in general, I'll rate it a two-star to call the manufacturer's attention to its design mentality.

I bought this to replace the hard drive in a fit-PC Slim fit-PC Slim Linux so it would run in silent, no-moving part mode.

Visually the adapter looks like right size, but when compared to the Fujitsu 60GB drive it replaced, it is both thicker (9.5mm vs 9.0 mm) and effectively longer. In my fit-pc the thickness prevented the adapter from sliding in to the space vacated by the hard drive - there is a slot on the right inside cover where the adapter would not fit in. (To make it fit, I had to remove the top black plastic cover.)

Although the actual overall length is the same (100mm), when the cable connector is attached (and I had to bend all of the pins away from the circuit board to get the connector to 'seat'), the connector still sticks out to extend the length of the unit. This is the same connector that allowed to Fujitsu hard drive to fit perfectly. Doubtful another connector would work better as the connector did seat against the black angle pin block. Remember, the fit-pc is very small and its IDE connector is also, so I think Syba just didn't consider this in the size (pin length) and placement (relative to the circuit board) of the angle pin connector block.

So I had to trim off the last 1.5mm of the bottom cover. I tried to just put the circuit board into the fit-pc without any of the black cover, but the circuit board was just a little too free to flop around from side-to-side without it.
However, after all the modifications, the adapter did indeed work with 4GB Sandisk Ultra Compact Flash card

Nifty little adapter makes a Compact Flash card look like a 44-pin 2.5" notebook drive.

Has LED-s on it to show power and disk activity.

Caveats:

This device can be plugged in "upside down" with likely disastrous results. Make sure you "mind Pin1". Pin 1 is denoted by a square pad for the copper on the Printed Circuit Board.

You may have to break off one of the pins of the 44-pin connector to fit the the socket. Examine the drive you are replacing carefully to note which pin to break off. Again, make sure to mind your pin1 to insure you do not accidentally have the drive upside down.

Formatting for DOS 6.20:

Remove the old HDD, replace with this module. I used a SanDisk "ULTRA" CF card. You want a fast one, and you want one with the wear-leveling issue addressed. The File Allocation Table takes a lot of hits, and EEPROM-based Flash technologies have had a history of write endurance issues. I have already had volleys of Email with SanDisk over this. Their ULTRA series incorporate advanced wear-leveling algorithms that keep me from killing the FAT area. As you know, if the FAT is corrupted, the data becomes inaccessible, as the OS has no idea where it is.

Incidentally, the ULTRA series CF cards have a lifetime warranty.

Boot up under a bootable floppy, having at least the system, command.com, fdisk.exe, format.com.

Using FDISK, delete the existing NON-DOS primary partition ( actually, it is formatted FAT32, but the early FDISK does not know anything about FAT32 ).

Create a new primary partition. On my machine, I had a 8GB CF card installed. FDISK only saw 1GB. I went ahead and created a 1GB FAT16 primary partition.

Reboot.

Style Name: SATA to Dual CF
Anyone who's tried installing Windows onto "removable media" has learned the lessons and hassles of workarounds such as the Hitachi CFADisk.sys drivers, or duping the install process by launching on a VHD to be interrupted and replicated to CF cards and the rest of the bs like substituting Embedded versions with their own unique bugs.

But so far, this Syba's controller has presented every CF card to Windows as Fixed instead of Removable including cards including recalcitrant Lexar UDMA Pro Series from 233 to 400x along with the friendlier Transcend that Addonics always mounted as removable.

Just successfully installed Server 2008 DC onto an antiquated 32GB 233 Lexar, installed Windows 8 Pro onto a 400x Transcend without the usual hiccups and crashes setup.exe vomits over removable disks. Whether in the SATA port or the USB slot, they mount as fixed and it makes experimenting with Windows at better than spindle speeds a reality that nerdinga's and boomerangers insist aren't as fast as true SSD's which may or may not be true since unoptimized Windows can stress and waste any SSD worse than the NJ Governors airplane.

Crucial 8Gb Lexar Media Professional Udma 300X Compactflash Cf8Gb-300-380 SSD and adapter costing less than $40 total, the setup runs as fast as a SATA2 7200 RPM drive but uses less battery but creates more heat from a CPU kept busy by a responsive disk.
