    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Bought it for the drive replacement in my Ipod 4th generation. Ipod had a worn out hard drive. Operation completed successfully. Ipod woke up instantly when i joined CF card through this adapter.

    Cons: Had some minor difficulties determining which one is the first pin but it only took some time. Should be more informative manual. Now it is just a piece of paper with not much of information.

    Other: Great value for the money.

    posted by sohman on 04:27:25 G11T 30/11/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Reasonable price, physical size small enough to fit into the space previously occupied by a 1.8 inch HDD

    Cons: I ordered 3, one of them had a bent pin, should still work after straightening it out though.

    Other: If you have a redundant CF card and a mini laptop with a dead 1.8 inch IDE HDD this is a cheap way to make both useful again.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Does what it has to do. It worked like a charm.
    It is easy & practical to replace a hard disk (in combination with compact flash cards, also available on this site).

    Cons: Only minor con is that you have to pay attention that the pins of the connector properly match with your compact flash. There is an indicaton. Just pay close attention.

    Other: If you want to replace a hard disk with a compact flash for a small device, you will need something like this.

    posted by lordakula on 17:16:55 G10T 02/10/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very good item, works perfectly. I have this installed in an ipod with a 32gb flash card. Also would be good for other applications, I imagine

    Cons: The jumper on the board is the tallest part of the board. The jumper makes the board too tall, it would be better to remove it and solder the connection closed - which I will do once I get a soldering iron.

    Other: Extremely good deal, a definite buy if this is what you need.

  • Better than sku.18463!

    posted by queryno4 on 14:12:50 G5T 26/05/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works, seems far more durable than it looks. Being used with a 133x 32GB Kingston CompactFlash card in a Toshiba Gigabeat F40. Speeds are comparable to use outside of the adapter (fast), so no complaints or issues there.

    Cons: It's not as cheap as the old one? I'd still pay double or triple what I did if I had to though.

    Other: If you're contemplating between this and sku.18463, get this one. It's definitely worth the difference in price.

    posted by kgleow on 04:11:45 G4T 22/04/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I replace it with Toshiba 1.8" HDD on my Toshiba Portege R200. It works well with 8GB Kingston CF card with x133 speed. Read/write speed is slower then HDD but the price is a lot more cheaper! (USD300 for a HDD VS

    Cons: Read/write speed is slow, not sure how is it with a higher speed CF card.

    Other: Recommanded to user which need only lower read/write speed....

  • Works great in 4th gen iPods

    posted by icemansquared on 18:03:54 G2T 03/02/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to install- just plug it in and restore through iTunes. Very cheap and made my iPod work again after a few years of sitting around collecting dust.

    Cons: As previous reviews have stated, there is a jumper pin that needs to be bent back with pliers so the screen displays normally. Otherwise, a little black pressure spot will show up when the iPod is closed up.

    Other: I recommend this to anyone who has an iPod sitting around and is interested in fixing things.

  • It works, here's how to plug it in

    posted by dfreccia on 10:46:02 G11T 21/11/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This product works as advertised to replace a 1.8" Toshiba drive with a compact flash card. Ive got it in a resurrected 4th generation iPod. The compactflash is more durable than a spinning hard drive, and this combination is much less expensive than trying to buy a new hard drive

    Cons: One hiccup during installation: this drive converter had more holes in it that the pins coming out of the ipod. It took me a few times to get it in the right spot, but then I realized there is a "Pin 1" and an arrow printed on the board showing you where to start. (you can see it in the photo). Once I aligned the first pin in there, I plugged in the iPod and got the "unhappy folder" display. Success!

    Other: It works. Good price, easy to do, and totally worth the price.

  • Great way to fix Ipod with bad HDD

    posted by jphphotography on 18:59:30 G7T 23/07/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Does exactly what its supposed to do

    Cons: If you're using this to fix an iPod the jumper is too high to fit. I had to bend the pins together and solder them, no big deal.
    Soldering quality on the pin headers look a little sketchy but it probably was fine, I reflowed them just to be sure.

    Other: I've fixed 2 3rd Gen iPods with these adapters, friends just give them to me because they're junk. Pop the hard drive out and replace it with one of these and a CF card (make sure you get the connection from ipod to adapter correct) presto you have a decent ipod that cost you <$20

    posted by daeman on 08:10:58 G3T 21/03/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I installed this adapter together with a Kingmax 4GB CompactFlash card inside my old iPod (4th Gen).
    The iPod was recognized without any problem and was successfuly restored using iTunes.

    Cons: Master/Slave jumper may be too high for slim iPods (with original hard drive of 30GB or less). It fits all right within my 40GB iPod, which is thicker.

    Other: Perfect for reviving an old iPod 4G with a crashed hard drive, at a very low cost.
    This one will stay connected to my audio setup and serve as an alarm clock ;-)
