IDE CompactFlash Adapter
Documentation FAQ
Use CompactFlash Media As A Hard Drive!

CompactFlash is a widely used storage medium for digital cameras, and if you own a Glenside IDE interface, you can now bring this fast, inexpensive storage to your Color Computer!

This adapter is engineered to mate standard Type I CompactFlash cards to the any IDE interface easily and transparently. Existing IDE drivers work with no needed changes.

A world of possibilities opens up for your computer with this product. It's great for embedded applications, where a bulky floppy or hard disk controller and drives are just too much. It also makes a great hard drive replacement: no moving parts and no risk of hard drive head crashes.

Please note that the CompactFlash card is NOT included.
Also, CompactFlash is NOT hot-swappable.
