Small ide HD
I’ve seen pics of these small hard drives on focus cards a few times. I’m interested in finding out which hard drive it is but I’ve had no luck searching

I can't comment on the card

I can't comment on the card itself, but the drive looks like an HP Kittyhawk:

Thanks, I think finding a Kittyhawk may be a little difficult but I'll keep an eye out now that I know what to look for

With the right adapter I think you can use a Compact Flash (CF) card with that Focus hard drive controller.

You can use a CF adapter.

I have a few Focus cards. One has a 2.5" HD and the others have CF adapters.

I was just interested in trying out the card with the Kittyhawk drive.

Now that I know the drive name I did some research and found a bit of an issue. Wit the Focus the HD pins need to be inline with the drive and they are with the Kittyhawks used with the Focus. However in all the pics I've seen of the kittyhawk the pins are at right angles to the drive. Not insurmountable but more work than I want to do to fit the drive
