USB to IDE Converter/Adaptor

Recommended Posts

I have an Archos Arcdisk, which is a Flash Drive with a Male USB Plug.

For my experimentation with successfully installing windows on a flash drive , it must be directly connected to the ide socket on the m/b.

Idealy what I want if there is such a thing is a USB female to IDE female adaptor or converter.Or some help with the Pinouts for the ide to usb.

You need more than just pin ouits. USB is serial data transfer and IDE is parallel. You require a converter chip to do this for you. If you cannot find a converter i can build one for you but it will require me to create a pcb for the conversion process (which might cost a bit).
