    Good find:2.5" Laptop hard drive 44pin-40pin adapter for $5 shipped at Shentech.com

    I hope my fellow peeps find this useful. It is an adapter to connect 2.5" HD to a regular ATX mobo.

    Here's the kicker: $5 shipped!

    UPDATE 1 Got mine today in the mail. Site/product is legitimate.
    UPDATE 2 Woops WARNING!!!! The product I receive dies not look like the one on their site. It's different, but looks good altogether.
    UPDATE 3 Contacted them, and asked them why they sent different part than that in their picture/website. They said no problem, will send a new one to match the pic. Will post results here.
    UPDATE 4 GOOD NEWS! After calling them and inquiring, they agreed to send the correct part at no extra cost. I received the CORRECT part today in the mail, as per the picture on their website: http://store1.yimg.com/I/shentech_1851_28954900 Make sure you specify you want part #HD-108 !!
    I did notice the MALE side of the adapter has all pins.. I might have to cut the center pin to fit the IDE connector (normally the IDE connector does not allow for the center pin...)

    My wife took the camera, sorry. But here is the exact same model (I searched by part # LGH-IDE-K as printed on the PCB) and came up with this image on eBay. This is the exact one:
