WANTED: IDE SD Card Reader
« on: June 03, 2009, 12:02:29 AM »
Looking for a cheap IDE card reader for a project I'm working on. Does anyone have one or know where I can purchase a cheap one? Also can you get CD-Rom Drives with the old power connector (Like on the floppy drives, Small white clip)?

Thanks
Mark

Nope, all CD-ROMs either have the bigger conenctor (like Hard Drives) or are SATA (if they are new)
I suspect you'd be able to get adaptors though.

Get the one off eBay as it can take larger cards than the other one, which is restricted to 4GB.

When I get home from work I'll buy that one off ebay as I will need one that can handle more than 4GB.

Many thanks to you all that helped!

I bought the one off ebay and a few of those power cables aswell, so its just waiting now. Tonight I've been looking online for an internal 3.5 Compact Flash card reader but the only type I can find are these 21 in 1 etc. I want one with just the one slot for compact flash, did anyone ever make these? I can't find these anywhere.

Just found an adaptor for this but my other problem now is, can you get some sort of an adaptor / convertor to connect a 40pin IDE cable to a 34pin IDE cable?

I think there's a bit more to it that adapting 40pin - 34pin.
It'll be sending completely different signals ... to top that off, I've not seen any cables like that.
There may be someone out there who does 'em, but I don't know who ... sorry!

The one I bought came from that seller. They seem to have a good selection of adaptors and at nice prices to.
