Hi All,

I bought the wrong adapter by mistake (ment to by atapi to ide). For sale is a brand new adapter which converts latop ide to standard ide.

£5 posted anywhere...as thats what I payed for it.

Cheers

T

T,

I am not sure why you were looking for an ATAPI to IDE adapter since they are the same thing. ATAPI is IDE...IDE is ATAPI. What exactily are you trying to do?

Yes, atapi is ide. Even so the connector is different. I want to convert an atapi conector into a standard full size ide connector.

If you dont understand...thing of a mini jack to phono adapter...they carry the same data, but the form factor is different.

You mean you want a laptop-style IDE/ATAPI/ATA to desktop-style IDE/ATAPI/ATA adapter?

ATAPI = ATA Packet Interface, a way of encapsulating SCSI style commands over the IDE/ATA bus. It is nothing more that a software standard, not a hardware connector standard.
