Default PCMCIA 1.8 HDD Adaptor???

Hi,

Just starting out here at tech-forums. Looks pretty good thus far, it seems so hard to find a good BBS these days. (where did everyone from HDC and ITfreaks go to?)

Anyway, first order of the day:

I happened to notice that an ex ipod hdd i have would fit nicely inside my laptops PCMCIA slot, and the thought went something like this..."Wouldn't it be cool to have a pcmcia hdd, laptop only i know, but theres an extra 40 or so gb right there."

Question:

Does anyone know if there are any adapters to take an ata 1.8" Toshiba hdd to a pcmcia port, or a reasonably well documented walk through of someone hacking one together?

Thanks

ok man, just did some googling, and, getting a pcmcia hdd is not worth it, the transfer rate is incredibly slow. go with usb, or firewire if possible, they will probably be cheaper, and have more capacity.
