But if I wanted to try some TRUE IDE MODE on Compact Flash, I'd try this one -> http://www.tapr.org/kits_cfa.html
There are plenty of converters out there that allow you to connect an IDE device (Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive) to a PC via the USB port. Does anyone know if there is a device that allows you to connect / interface a USB memory stick (thumb drive) to an open IDE port? This is not for a PC. This is for a music recording device that has an internal hard drive and a CD burner along with some other interfaces that are part of the musical recording world (S/PDIF and ADAT). I'm not interested in buying the interconnect hardware to utilize these interfaces. Currently, I have to transfer files from the recorder to my PC via CDRWs and it is a slow process. It would be much more convenient to use a USB thumb drive to transfer files to my PC for final editing and archiving. Thanks.
