[QUOTE=uncleman;2114139]Hi guys, is there a way to connect my usb flash drive directly to my motherboard’s IDE port ??? Reason is, I am “still” playing with DOS and I don’t need 160GB HDD which is $$$$. 1GB usb flash is cheap and more than enough for DOS.[/QUOTE]
No that is not possible, but you can use a IDE to Compact Flash adater.
Here an example: (sorry the shop link is in german…)
I’m sure in your country same modules are available. You can plug this adapter to the IDE port and you plug a CF card into this adapter board.
And btw. 160GB HDDs are nor really expensive. If you are lucky you’ll find a store selling the good old 40GB or 80GB…
