I should have something close. Can the capacity be more than 20 gb?

Would have thought you'd need to try a museum for a 20GB drive!

 

Good luck, though.

I used to have a 20 gb drive laying around somewhere. Don't know what happened to it. If I can find it you can have it. I'll let you know.

Okay, I actually found the drive. 20 gb IDE Seagate Barracuda. I just checked it on a USB enclosure and it seems fine, certainly as a data drive. It had an old Win 98 on it and I formatted it FAT32 and no errors or problems. If you want it, you can have it. People here have helped me with various things at no charge and I am happy to pass that on. I live in rural Hastings. You are welcome to pick it up if you like, or I can ship it to you. If you want me to post it, PM me with your address but you will have to wait until the next time I go into town, which may be a few days.

Better to look for a  "PATA to CF adapter" or "PATA DOM".

petercad: Yeah, I know. It's for a mixing desk.

 

 

 

What's the mixing desk?

 

 

 

I had good results with an old console, replacing the HDD with a compact flash card and IDE adapter. 

 

It runs DOS and win 3.11 so fortunately no excessive disk writes to contend with..
