40 Pin IDE to CompactFlash CF Adapter 40pin 40-pin Converter AdapterPRODUCT CODE: PR523
IDE to CompactFlash CF Adapter Converter.
Replace or upgrade an IDE Hard Disk Drive with a Solid State CompactFlash CF Memory Card.
Ideal for retro vintage computer enthusiasts and retro DOS gamers wanting to play Dos Games on actual vintage 286 - 386 - 486 and Pentium Hardware. Boot tested on our sweet i486DX2-66.
This adapter can replace a hard disk drive. Once the system starts with this adapter & a CF card attached, the CF card appears to the system as an IDE disk drive. Unlike other flash storage systems, such as disk-on-chip modules, this solution does not require device driver or additional software to run the unit. CF card can be the primary boot device containing the OS and application or secondary storage.
Compact Flash (CF) is a flash memory mass storage device used mainly in portable electronic devices. The format was specified & the devices were first manufactured by SanDisk in 1994.
Parallel ATA or PATA, originally AT Attachment, is an interface standard for the connection of storage devices such as hard disk drives, floppy disk drives & optical disc drives in computers.
The ATA interface itself evolved in several stages from Western Digital's original Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE) interface.
After the introduction of Serial ATA (SATA) in 2003, the original ATA was renamed to Parallel ATA or PATA for short. For years, ATA provided the most common & least expensive interface for this application.
