Would you be willing to tell more about the CF upgrade? I haven't been able to use an 8GB CF card in my 760XL. I think the problem may be the little adapter that connects the IDE to the system board. The one I've been working with is 82H5536, which is supposed to work with drives larger than 4GB. What puzzles me is that I have 10GB drive (with capacity reduced to 8GB by the Hitachi disk tool) working in a caddy with the 29H9422 adapter, which is supposed to have troubles with large drives. I don't want to take apart that caddy and drive, because it's my main system. (It's partitioned to multiboot DOS, Win95, Win98, NT4, and Win 2000.) I'm hoping to copy it all to a CF but haven't succeeded yet.
Again, any details of the adapter you're using would be welcome. Thanks!
