    Where to buy (44 pin IDE cable)

    Hey Guys,

    I need to buy a 44 pin notebook IDE cable for my carputer. I would preferably like to purchase it in Canada somewhere because UPS just raped me again with a $40 brokerage fee on a Opus power supply.

    5.5-6" would be perfect. Any ideas on where I can get one?

    Thanks.

    eBay? And ship everything imported from the states via USPS, not UPS. No brokerage and it comes through the Canada Post.

    Thanks. Just checked ebay, the only thing that comes up is a USB to 44pin IDE adaptor

    I would have shipped via usps if it was an option on Opus's website

    Does your carputer's motherboard accept 44pin laptop IDE? Or do you need to convert it to full IDE?

    You need a small adapter which converts 44 pin IDE to normal IDE. See http://www.myelectronics.nl/ > "Kabels en converters" > "Converter for Notebook HD on IDE cable" or "Convertercable for Notebook HD on IDE bus, 30 cm"

    Yeh, the motherboard only has a 44 pin laptop IDE connector and I am using a laptop drive, which is a perfect combination since the drive is powered right off the board. I yanked an IDE cable out of a Compaq laptop, but the cable exited the wrong way out of the connector, so I had a slight clearance issue.
