    IDE adapter: 40F -> 44M

    I checked out the whole ebay and did not come up with anything.

    I am looking for the ide adapter 40F - 44M, but everybody offers 40M - 44F. Do you know where I can find the one I am looking for?

    Thanks,

    Sorry, I don't know of a reverse one. Why do you need something like this? Maybe a solution can be found with cabling?

    Both mobo and hdd uses 44pin and I need to connect the slim cd to the whole set. Maybe there is a 50 PIN JAE CD/DVD-Rom to 44-pin IDE adapter?

    Ah, I see. Well, try these:

    slim cd to 44pin:

    IDE cable connecting a 44pin and a 40pin to a 40pin on the mobo:

    btw, a 44pin cable is, at best, ATA33, which means you might not be able to get the bandwidth you need if it's a DVDROM

    hmmm... how about usb 2.0 (which I would like to avoid) or sata?

    Both of that should work. I too didn't want anymore USB and settled with firewire for the DVDROM.

    BTW, I did a quick search for sata, and this is the only one I found for 10 seconds of searching:

    it's kinda big.

    Just FYI, you could plug a 40M - 44F adapter into the motherboard, get another 40M - 44F adapter to plug into the HD, and then use a 40-pin cable. I've done this before, and the adapters do work 'backwards'.

    What do you mean? ATA33 is more than suffient for DVD playback. I think even DVD burning can be done at a fair speed, so long as you have DMA enabled.
