Quote from: Aperture Science on August 28, 2020, 04:14:59 AMMaybe it is time to make a PCB board for this? I only used one resister instead of four.
Quote-PDIAG(True IDE Mode)In the True IDE Mode, this input/output is the Pass Diagnostic signalin the Master/Slave handshake protocol.
Quote from: ArcziPL on August 28, 2020, 10:34:25 PMUnfortunately, I have no idea about CF and no time to go into the topic, but just quickly checked the pins with pull-ups.https://www.syslogic.de/ProductDocuments/deu/Product-Manual---503-CF.pdfOthers (/WE, /CS1, /DMACK) should be plain inputs. Try at least to add a second, separate resistor for PDIAG. No idea what and when this pin does, if it's used in both directions in True IDE (sorry, really no time) but as a quick check it might be worth trying...
Quote from: Aperture Science on August 30, 2020, 05:28:24 PMOkay, new plan.I decide to learn how to use altium designer and make a PCB board for this.No more stupid fly wires.

Quote from: gzillarocks on September 04, 2020, 10:28:26 AMHey Aperture Science- I'm really hoping that you can find a way to adapt from CF to SATA, or CF to MSATA, for cameras with Magic Lantern. I will definitely be following this forum to see how you progress! I did find this product online that works with a Canon c200, but I'm not sure if this device can work on a DSLR with Magic Lantern or not. Either way, I wanted to send you the product link so you can check it out and maybe it can be helpful to you: https://store.n.ki/products/solidpod - The product is called SolidPod CF cards are so much more expensive than SSD's, and I've found forums on here going back to 2013 with people trying to find a way to adapt from CF to SATA, but without a lot of luck. Hopefully with the newer MSATA, or NVME devices it might be easier to create an adapter that works for Canon cameras with magic lantern.I would also check out what RED did with their MAG recording devices. It looks like they are using some type of adapter inside the housing- that might be useful to you too. Let me know if there is anything I can help with, I will be following along for sure.
Quote from: Aperture Science on September 07, 2020, 06:51:12 PMFew things need to clarify.First, Canon 5Dmk3 (also include 5DS,5DSR,7D,5D2) are all using "Compact Flash" which is a type of SSD based on the IDE interface.However Canon C200 uses "CFast 2.0" which is a type of SSD based on the SATA interface (which we used a lot on our computer nowadays)In the same time, the socket they developed is also based on the SATA. As in the video send by gzillarocks, there is no chip set in between the socket and the mSATA.The highest speed IDE socket can go is around 133m/s while SATA2.0 can support around 300m/s. Not to mention SATA3.0. SATA and IDE conversion need a chip set, not simply putting wires together. That is the reason why no one makes the adapter on the market since there is only a little demand on this. (Hey, professional cinema cameras are all have CF2.0 or even USB type-C installed There is no Adapter on the market have the function we need, so we have to make our own I am only an undergraduate freshman majors on EE, no experience on making the PCB. But lets see how far we can get on this since I think it will work theoretically.PS:Compact Flash can also being known as IDE 50(since there are 50 pins on it), I saw these kind of SSD before when my father was still using floppy. They have the exactly the same socket as compact flash do, just little bit longer and wider on the body. But people are not manufacture these drives anymore and because of the high selling price at that time, these kind of dives didn't sold a lot. So it is also hard to be finding in the second-hand market.

Quote from: kitor on September 09, 2020, 11:21:16 AMSorry, but you are wrong. Those SSDs depicted on photo have completely different pinout than CF, it's called 1.8 IDE. I had one of those on OQO 01+, and still own adapter that converts CF pinout so you can plug it to replace this kind of "CF connector" drive. Their connector is also slightly different so you can't just force CF card into 1.8 IDE (and 1.8 IDE drive is wider so you can't force it into CF)Also, let me remind you all that CF standard has three types of operation, one of them is IDE emulation. There are cards that don't support IDE mode, CF readers/controllers also need to support this mode / talk ATA to card.
Quote from: 71m363nd3r on September 09, 2020, 08:36:40 PMDo you know that 99% all the cameras have a max limit of card storage that they accept.
Quote from: Walter Schulz on September 09, 2020, 08:40:20 PMSource?And why should 1% (which one?) accept *all* sizes? CF 4.0 is defined for up to 512 GByte. CF 5.0 up to 128 PiByte (128 x 1024 TiByte).
