1 out of 5 eggs Fujitsu Lifebook S2110 not working 06/10/2011

This review is from: SYBA SY-IDE2CF-NB25 Ultra IDE to Compact Flash Adapter

Pros:

Looks to be a well-made product. I like the jumper for voltage. Was able to confirm the adapter itself works by connecting it to a 44pin ATA-to-USB adapter, and plugging it into a USB port. The 32GB Transcend 400x CF card popped up no problem.

Cons:

Unfortunately, my Fujitsu Lifebook S2110 (2005 model, AMD Tirion64, 2GB RAM, ATI X200 chipset) did not recognize any ATA drive when this adapter was substituted for the hard disk. The notebook has two ATA bus, one for the HDD and one for the optical drive. Both drives are set to master for their respective bus. But even with the optical drive removed just in case, and the jumper on master/slave/cable sel, voltage to 5 or 3.3, the BIOS just does not see any ATA drive there, nor are any errors reported. It also sees no ATA drive when a 1GB microdrive is inserted instead of the CF card.

Other Thoughts:

I wish it worked in place of the HDD. It works when connected via ATA-USB adapter. The Transcend CF card works when plugged into a Cardbus adapter on the same notebook, too. Unfortunately I cannot boot it off the Cardbus slot, or this might be an acceptable workaround.
