Active IDE Adapter for Compact Flash Cards
TrueIDE is a converter that allows you to use up to two Compact Flash cards with your IDE controller. TrueIDE even permits the use of CF cards that regular (passive) converters will only show as removable devices. The active part of TrueIDE parses the data stream that is exchanged between IDE controller and the CF card, and whenever the IDE controller checks for removability, TrueIDE will report back that the media is "fixed". This will allow installing and booting any operating system from a CF card.
TrueIDE features two 40-pin IDE connectors, so you can mount the adapter either horizontally or vertically. The picture above shows the TrueIDE converter being mounted horizontally on a Buddha "phoenix edition" controller, the picture below shows a vertical mount on a PC IDE controller.
