How can I read IDE drives of sizes 540MB and below on a modern computer?
I tried an USB-adapter, but it only supports LBA, not the older CHS style drives.
Some old drives may also lack auto detect, I read.
Some internal adapters also lack the ability to read CHS drives, I read.
The drive I'm working on is a 107MB ST3123A.
Is there such an adapter, one that supports CHS drives with autodetect? Even better, supports drives without autodetect?
It can be an internal PCI-(express) card.
EDIT: I found a thread saying the SYBA SD-PEX40035 and SD-PEX50049 internal controller card works for this purpose, and that the Marvell 88SE912X chips they use can be found on some other boards as well.
Also, the BYTECC PCIe BT-PES321i.
Anyone with experience using these?
