Can anybody show me ones that have worked for them?

I just got a dataflyer 500, and want to go cf in it, Instead of using a 40 to 44pin converter and then a ide to cf converter, I want to get a male 40 pin to compact flash adapter.

I know some work better than others.

Thanks,
dabone

@Dabone: what about a solid state device? It plugs straight to the IDE connecotr with no adaptors at all.

I'm cheap.

besides, I want to be able to load new stuff using my pc.
(Speaking of which, I can't see the partitions on the cf card under winuae?????)

Take a look at the ones dealextreme.com has

I have a couple of those and more on it's way.

there are some of them where the pins are _just_ long enough so when the cable is attached you cant be sloppy and leave a gap of half a millimeter, the connector needs to be connected all the way through, but then it works as intended.

unfortunately they don't have the ones you can attach directly to the IDE port of the A1200/A600 so a cable is required here.

cheers
