Hello, i just wanted to tested CF or SD adapter to IDE with my retro gaming machine, with Asrock Conroe865PE board and Core E6600 and 4 GB Ram. Im using some 30 MB/s 8GB SD card nothing fancy, but its fine. I didnt expected problems, so i just bough adapters from ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Practical-S...432932?hash=item1a22872924:g:7IoAAOSwImRYYHxC and http://www.ebay.com/itm/Compact-Fla...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 + http://www.ebay.com/itm/High-Speed-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Experience with both is almost same, there are really slow, but i the strange way, regarding of Atto benchmark transfer speed is fine - 30 MB/s but there long pauses - mouse cursor is working, but Atto test which is just for few minutes, took much more. I have installed XP, it took 4-5 hours, i dont have other IDE board to test it, i wonder if is problem with MB incompatibility or with adapters? Did you met such crappy adapters which could do this, or its Asrock bios? I already had some issues with their IDE and Sata implementation, that is why i have even started to consider these adapters..
