CF Card Adapter help
« on: October 23, 2006, 07:15:21 PM »
Hey there! Hoping someone can help me out.

I'm connecting a 2 GB CF card to my A1200 using a compact flash to IDE connector.

My adapter needs power drawn from a pc floppy drive cable.
(Looks exactly like my 1200's cable)

If I draw power from the amiga's floppy drive, will the pinouts be the same?
Here's what I have going.
Stop me before I blow things up!
Hellpp!!
:-)

Yep, it's not recommanded but in theory it's the same thing that when "you use the A1200 floppy power connector to power a 3,5" harddisk AND the floppy drive"...

Note that some IDE CF adaptor simply doesn't work on A1200.

Mach5 products works :

What's your model (reference ?) ? Type of molex connector ?
