This review is from: SYBA SD-ADA45006 2.5" IDE 44-Pin To Dual Compact Flash Adapter
What is said about the device is accurate, but what is NOT said is very important. If you intend to use it as a Windows system boot device, you better buy the correct type CF card, example Transcend Industrial. I bought an ordinary Transcend card. MOST CF cards identify themselves as REMOVABLE. I spent most of a weekend beating my head and countless booting until I finally got it to boot, sort of. The MyComputer display showed the system disk as REMOVABLE (NOT GOOD), which was causing all my problems. Googled the situation, and the problem was confirmed. Not sure what'll I do. Warning buy a CF card that identifies as FIXED disk, and good luck figuring out which one's are. I have discovered that ADDONICS makes a similar adapter that ALWAYS reports any and all CF cards as FIXED to windows.
