I have several adaptors that connect IDE 3.5 and 2.5 and SATA to USB
I am looking for a similar adaptor that will connect 2.5 drive with the edge connector to USB or a gender changer to do the same.
I Google search has so far turned up what I already have.
To clarify the hardrive in question does not have the IDE pins or SATA slot it is an edge connector[male] to what is needed is female to USB or to IDE.
The usual sources seem only to have the IDE/SATA type to USB
Any ideas folks
Do you mean this type of thing ?
Th ank you nontek
This appears to be a variation of what I have- a universal IDE[2siazes] and SATA to USB
[Amazon - Iomah adaptor]
The drive I wish to connect has no pins or sockets but an edge connector such as PCI cards or memory strips have.
Are you sure that isn't an adaptor in itself, just pushed onto the normal pins? I say this because I was confused by such a setup on an HP laptop drive - it just pulled off, then I could connect my normal USB/SATA adaptor.
The link thing did not work try this
One of the mane advice site suggested that the edge connector is a puch on fir onto a standard 2.5 IDE
I gave it a go and it was so- simply pulls off and there we are- the pins
Like I said!
Yer right - I posted the above before I read the latest - as you said.
Glad it's sorted - had me confused for a while.
