Simple fix for an older computerI installed this in an Intel SE440BX-2 MOBO, Pentium iii computer, running Windows 98 SE. It is replacing an older mechanical hard drive that hit it's end of life. I was comparing my options, install a SATA controller card, buy another IDE drive, install a DOM, or go the removable route. I chose this one and I have this setup as the primary master. The BIOS accepts this with no problems at all. In combination with a 32GB UDMA CF card running at 200X this is running comparable to the ATA-33 drive I pulled out of the computer, actually faster since the old drive was dying. My tests came back with transfer speeds consistently at 30MB/s with the highest being 34MB/s and the lowest being 26MB/s. This is consistent to UDMA-2 standards and right on par with ATA-33 interface. Newer interfaces would probably not see much of a performance increase unless the CF card is rated 400x or higher. Additionally, I have another 32GB 133X CF Card showing transfer rates of on average of 24MB/s. Booting is pretty snappy for Windows 98, application and game loading is acceptable and writing to the card appears to be smooth without any unnecessary delays. I chose the slot adapter because I have another CF card for Windows 95, and yet another for just MS DOS 6.22. If you are looking to go this route, do not get cheap on the CF card you put in. There is no bottleneck created by the adapter itself, the performance you will be seeing is directly related to the actual CF card. A decent UDMA enabled CF card is not that much more than the earlier, slower, generation cards. Shop around, even on EBay people are selling brand new ones for very little. I would recommend this for anyone looking to add CF card functionally to a desktop with a full expansion slot open. Don't expect the SSD performance, these are inherently just a CF card, and nothing more. You're expectations should remain realistic.4Does The JobSmall footprint. Ready to work out of the box. I'm using these adapters in retro computer builds. They're small, convenient, and best of all - quiet. They consume a tiny fraction of electricity, compared to traditional HD's that often pull more than 1 Amp under load. They're the best alternative to SSD's considering that IDE bandwidth will not let you take full advantage of SATA speeds anyway.Only downside is that CF itself as a format is slowly becoming obsolete. A better option may be to get and SD to IDE version of the same device.One thing to keep in mind is that the product does not come with a Molex to Floppy power adapter, that you will most certainly need, if your system already uses available plugs for other devices such Floppy, Zip or whatever.5Purchased for a projectPurchased one of these, along with a 2GB CF card, for a test with my local bowling center. Their lane computers are quite old (Pentium 90mHz, if I'm not mistaken), and contain a fairly small IDE HDD. Since the HDD's in these systems are failing, we thought we'd try these to replace the spinning disks.Unfortunately, due to the custom nature of these PC's, they wouldn't boot from these devices. If I placed one of these in a 'normal' desktop PC, formatted the card and threw DOS on it, it booted fine, so we know it wasn't the adapter or the card we used.I'm giving this product 5 stars because it's not Syba's (or the memory card manufacturers) fault that it didn't work for our purposes.5PowerMac G4 upgradeUpgraded a PowerMac G4 digital audio from 2001 with this adapter. Incredibly easy to install and my OS 9 / OS X dual boot system boots right up. I tried installing a SATA PCI card and a solid state drive and I had trouble booting. This really helps speed up an older system.5Great for replacing old IDE hard drivesI bought this unit so that I could use a CF card instead of my IDE hard drive on a Windows 98 Retro Box. As you can tell, all you have to do is easily add in the card within the PCI slot. There are jumpers if you need to configure this drive as secondary/slave. However, in my setup only thing primary was this reader.No problems in getting the card recognized and with my CF card, this thing boots quickly into Windows 98. I also set up a RAM drive to minimize wear.5Works great with my 20 year old Retro PCI've purchased about a dozen StarTech CF-IDE adapters for various retro computers but I decided to try the Syba since it was half the cost and I didn't need a drive bay.I'm happy to say it works perfectly in my 20 year-old retro computer (an old AMD computer from 1997). I'm using this card with a SanDisk 16 GB CF and, unlike some of the super-cheap cards, this DOES send the HDD activity indicator to the motherboard so the LED does work properly. The overall build quality seems good and the CF card rails are deep enough so I don't feel like I'm going to bend the pins. Inserting and removing the card is smooth. The slot opening does come rather close to the edge of my case's back bracket but I didn't run into any clearance issues with my particular PC case.5Some bracket modification was required to get this to fit our IBM PS/1 rear case slot!My search for a rear case mounted CFC >to> IDE adapter found this. NOTE - this review is for the style "by bracket", ADIDE2CF-A2 & not for "by cable" or "by direct".The pros:+ Reasonably priced at $9.95 with free shipping when I bought mine.+ 3 on board LED - card detect, activity & power.+ CFC voltage selection for +5.0V or +3.3V.+ On board jumper configuration for IDE jumper settings for master or slave mode.+ Supports Ultra DMA mode.+ Compatible with CompactFlash Type I, Type II & Micro Drives.+ Low power consumption.The cons:- Per the User Manual - "This adapter does NOT support hot insertion of CF cards"- Would not fit our IBM PS/1 rear case slot? The adapter bracket had the CFC slot too far to one side, so the CFC couldn't be inserted!- The on board CFC activity LED works, but oddly, the activity signal is NOT passed thru to the computer IDE controller. This means the case mounted activity LED will NOT indicate CFC activity!- Supports only 40-pin IDE interface. No socket installed for 44-pin cable.- No power cable is provided.- No IDE ribbon cable is provided.- No case slot hardware is provided.- The instruction booklet print is very small.CFC - CompactFlash card information: CompactFlash cards come configured to two different modes:[1] "Removable Disk Mode"[2] "Fix Disk Mode" Normally Commercial CF cards are set to "Removable Disk Mode" & Industrial CF cards are set to "Fix Disk Mode". This varies between manufactures, so it best to verify the mode of the CF card you purchase. CF card with "Fix Disk Mode" is used as a permanent data storage device. Use this card for creating fixed partitions, installing operating systems, or creating a bootable drive. Windows operating system will not place system files on a removable disk, so it's important to use only CF cards which are set to "Fix Disk Mode".Closing remarks: I had to modify the bracket, moving the CFC about 1/16 inch to clear the case. This required filing the bracket & using washer to space the adapter board over 1/16 inch. This was annoying, as the computer is an IBM PS/1 & has the standard slot opening size. Not passing thru the CFC activity signal to the IDE controller is curious. I sent Syba technical support this question, but no reply was forthcoming. The above issues was the reason for the 2 out of 5 rating stars.2Great Adapter with Minor ComplicationI tested this on a Pentium desktop PC from 1996. It recognized the adapter as an IDE drive. There were some difficulties formatting the CF card. I had to manually configure the drive type in the BIOS. Finally, Windows 95 installed with no issue. However, after the install completed and the PC rebooted, the computer got stuck on "OS load in progress..." and never made it further. Testing showed that all necessary files were on the CF card. Later research told me that the issue is most likely caused by the CF card's firmware declaring it as a removable disk instead of a fixed disk, which renders it non-bootable. I was able to find a Transcend CF card, model CF170, which is an industrial CF card, set as a fixed disk. I'll have to purchase this and do further testing to see if I can get Windows 95 or 98 to boot. The adapter itself seems to work as intended, and with minimal usage, I've already noticed file transfer speed improvements over a hard drive from that era.4Easy to install, works without any jumper changes or modifications.Easy to install, works without any jumper changes or modifications. You just put in a CF card and format the card like you would a new hard drive. Windows 2000 works great on CF cards since it doesn't run background processes the way Windows 98 and XP + do. MS-DOS is great on one of these too. You can just install different operating systems on different cards and switch them out as needed. I needed to keep the internal floppy drive on the computer I was using so that I could write disk images to disks for my Atari ST, so I bough a molex -> 4 pin floppy drive adapter. (search for IDE 4 Pin Molex to 4 Pin Floppy Disk and 4 Pin Molex Power Cable ) here on Amazon.5Great DeviceThis thing is great and i've had it for many months, many many months. Before I placed it in an older computer completely, it traveled around attempting to get old PCs working and to see how they work.It currently now lies in my older computer. That computer lacks any SATA support and only has IDE, however I have a SATA card. Since I use Linux, it can't use the BIOS to access the SATA card and on top of that, there's a software RAID setup. So I just made a 4GB partition, installed grub on it and made sure the initrd images contained the SATA and RAID drivers. The system used to have 10 Hard disks in it all RAIDed together to create massive storage, but this adapter has helped me slim down to 2 1TB HDDs in a RAID 1 with SATA in a cool and efficient matter (saved 50W and the room got alot quieter). Since it's IDE, any OS can use it. So if you are doing something like I did, then this is a requirement.However, depending on the layout and construction of the IDE slots of your motherboard it might slip out. On one system I had to tape it in so it would stay in, while on another system it fit and it didn't fall out.Be sure your CF card supports DMA, otherwise you will be stuck in PIO mode, which is CPU intensive and slow.5
