    Where can I get one of these for the Zif/CF adapter? I'd rather not buy a batch of ten which is all I've been able to find. My attempts to manufacture one have not produced very good results, though I'll keep trying.

    Cheers, Jon

    It is a ridiculous price, but if I bite the bullet I'll share.

    Cheers, Jon

    I think the price is stupid too... I hope someone who bought cheapest share with us the link.

    Those don't look like flip cables to me... As far as he's told me, only the other link is flip. Be sure to ask.

    Cheers, Jon

    Okay, I finally just gave up trying to make one and ordered both the ZF/CF converter that doesn't require a flip cable, and ten flip cables (for the Super Talent 32GB SSD). The flip cables are .035mm on each end so they're a tight fit for .025mm devices, but I have managed to use them with without breaking the connector.

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Cheers, Jon

    Finally! :D I finally received the flip cables and now everything works perfectly. The Super Talent 32GB SSD is lightening quick compared to the old Intel drive and I don't seem to get stalls anymore. I even have room to play with Ubuntu and iDeneb.

    If anyone needs a flip cable, message me and I'll send one along after you send me a postage paid, self-addressed envelope. I'm keeping two for the future which leaves seven available.

    Cheers, Jon

    Hi Jon

    Do you have any of those ZIF connectors left? I have a 16G SSD and it's soooo slow. Want to change it for a faster SSD or a PATA one.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Robin

    Can someone explain why you need to cross over cable? The pin out between the ssd and zif hdd are the same.
