I'm repurposing some equipment. Currently, there is an IDE44 interface in the device. I.e., it works "as is" (mechanically and electrically) with a 2.5" drive.
I would like to cobble a CF interface onto the existing IDE44 to replace the rotating media with something solid state (CF being a shorter path than any other technology).
IIRC, I *should* be able to do this just by dealing with the *mechanical* differences? Or, is there some subtlety that I am overlooking (installing a COTS IDECF adapter is problematic due to the mechanical constraints of the board...)
