iMac ide adapter / laptop ide to standard full size ide

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

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.
