I have the exact same setup, though I haven't tried it yet. Bought the CF>IDE adapters to use with real CF cards but also got an mSD>CF to use on an old camera. My SD>CF adapter has trouble reading small size mSD cards but has no issues on larger capacity ones. It doesn't matter if I read it on the camera or on the computer. Seems SD implementation is lacking. But your experience is different, apparently.
I've read about people having similar issues and one topic that comes often is that the CF card must be set to fixed disk mode. Some claim this can't be changed with these chinese adapters (or at all, with real CF cards that aren't factory set like that -- industrial CF cards) but I haven't tried any of it yet.
