Probably just another controller-less adapter, but with two slots for master and slave, and consequently without Master/Slave/Cable-select jumper, which would be superfluous. > - As a master I have an IBM microdrive (1gb) Ah yes... IBM Microdrives are not CF (memory) cards; they are 1" micro hard disks, so it is not a surprise it works like a charm when plugged on an IDE port (they were designed for it, and some even got a 40 pins IDE connector to plug directly into the connector of a motherboard). Sadly, brand new Microdrives cannot be found any more, or at astronomic prices only, and as a mechanical device, they are not more reliable than an old 3.5" or 2.5" PATA IDE drive... See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microdrive > - As a slave I have a 4 GB Toshiba SD HC with a CF adapter Type II. Any pointer on such an adapter ?... That could be a good solution if it indeed can plug in IDE to CF adapters and let us use a SDHC card. Such an adapter would have an IDE controller inside, which would also explain why it works fine.
