  • Anyone know this connector?

    http://www.toshiba.com/taecdpd/techd...2connect.shtml

    And if I can get an adapter to regular 40pin ide or make one?

    THanks,

    Hard to tell from the image. Looks like a laptop CD ROM. If thats the case then it's a standard laptop connector and you should be able to get an adapter off PriceWatch.

    Either that or it's a 50 pin SCSI-3 LVD connector. But that would be the first CD-ROM that I have ever seen with one.

      No, that is definitely not a standard laptop (i.e. 2.5" IDE) connector. Check the text -- it's got 50 pins (a standard 2.5" IDE has 44), and it clearly says "JAL KX15-50KLD L or equivalent connector". And from the pic you can see that it's some kind of slot with 25 contacts on each side.

      Sorry to disappoint you, but I had a laptop CD-ROM with a similar connector, and I never succeeded in finding an adapter.

        maybe it is the same as this one ? non-standard laptop connector on cdrom. Need help!

        so you might want to look at this adapter http://www.baber.com/baber/products/...cd_adapter.htm I have one comming in tommorrow (so I will get to play with it late tommorrow night or friday) so if you ahve any questions about it ask me then.

        and if you are good with electronics (I am not that good) you might be able to make some sort of adapter since you have the specs for the pins just match them to what normal IDE pinouts and you might be able to do something with it (I am just guessing here but somehting to look into if the link I gave above does not workout for some reason.

          Yes, that connector is what is called a JAE conenctor. I got the convertor for it yesterday and fits nicely and then screws in tight. It cost 20 dollars plus 14 for taxes and shipping here in california. As soon as my digital camera comes in I will tak some pics okay?

            One more thing. The one at http://www.baber.com/baber/products/...cd_adapter.htm would be fine if you want to use it with a 3.5 inch cable and a standard desktop. The one I got is for a 44 pin regualr 2.5 ide laptop connection and requires NO power supply. I got the one now from http://www.phethean.com/
