Hi all,

Who would be interested in a group for a new GIDE kit ?

GIDE is IDE drive for Z80 !

The GIDE interface has been developed (originally by Tilmann Reh in  
1995) to enable Z80 computers to connect to IDE devices.  Although the  
IDE bus is a 16-bit data bus the GIDE interface reads and writes in two  
8-bit accesses.

If there are people interested, I can start the making of 10 complete kits !

Like this : <http://www.iee.et.tu-dresden.de/~kc-club/gide/gide6.html>

After is possible to connected an IDE to Compact Flash adapter !

The Compact Flash in IDE mode works out really well with CP/M 2.2 since  
the maximum disk size that this OS can handle is 8MB.  All of the CF  
cards that I have looked at have 32 sectors per track and allow 512  
bytes per sector (= 16K per track) and they have just under 500  
Cylinders per head.  This gives a total size of just under 8MB per head  
and the number of heads depends on the size of the CF. (in this case  
16heads x 8=128MB)
