I just bought a PCMCIA - IDE Adaptor, it has a PCMCIA card in one end, and a 2.5 inch IDE HD plug on the other end. I hooked up a regular 2.5 inch HD and it worked perfectly on my Dell Notebook.
My question is: Can I take off the PCMCIA end and replace it with a CF? I know that a CF can be adapted to PCMCIA via a simple adaptor, so the wiring could be easily changed, but I don't know if CF standard allows the same functionality as PCMCIA for a regular IDE HD.
If this can be done, I should be able to use this adaptor to connect any HDD to my Zaurus.
