Hi there, Since we're still here.. I've got a question. I wanted to mod my other Dreamcast with a 44-pin IDE CF reader on the side (on top of the modem). So I bought a dremel tool and carved out a nice slot. However IDE uses so many wires it makes it hard to route them all to the test-points on the bottom of the mainboard. But I found this (attached) picture on this website: https://fnhack.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/nice-g1-ata-hdd-hack-from-aldair/gd-rom-hdd-mod/ So I first cut a bit of the side of the bottom plate of my GD-ROM housing. Then wired up my CF card reader using kynar wires to the points on the GD-ROM board instead. Now according to the information on this page: https://fnhack.wordpress.com/2015/05/21/new-pinout/ The following pins on the CF reader should be grounded: 2, 19, ,22, 24, 26, 30 and 40. Now according to the 44-pin (PATA) IDE spec, pin 43 should be grounded as well. See: But on the CF-reader I found out that pin 2, 19, 22, 24, 26 and 30 are actually connected internally. So I only connected pin 22, 40 and 43 to the ground point of the GD-ROM board. Furthermore I've connected 5v to both pin 41 (logic) and 42 (motor). All other pins have been connected as well using just kynar wire (no resistors or anything). The CF reader has been set to slave mode (no jumper). But it doesn't seem to light up. Tried different CF cards and confirmed it's getting 5v on pin 41 and 42. When I load DreamShell from CD-R it seems to hang forever when a CF card is inserted. Without a CF card it boots fine so the GD-ROM drive is OK. Any ideas? Is the pin-out on the GD-ROM board correct and suitable for a IDE Cf-reader?
