Plugging 2.5" Transcend PATA 44pin SSD into standard IDE socket
So, we have a need to use 44pin 2.5" PATA SSDs in machines with normal IDE.
The Transcend 1GB SSD comes with a female connector, and the board has a male connector.
Thing is, to get this to work, we need to change from 44pin to 40pin + Molex. We've got some adapters from Kenable which are supposed to do this.
However, when comparing the pin outs, pin 1 is connected to pin 2 on the 40 pin male connector. So, it appears to cross-over all the connections. (I'm using the pinouts at ATA (44) internal pinout and wiring @ pinouts.ru and ATA / IDE interface pinout and connections @ pinouts.ru to advise me here. The adapter is marked LGH-IDE-K.
Does anyone have an idea either where we can get adapter that will do this for us, or an idea to get this working?
