Asked by: arun
This is a discontinued product for us with no data available from the supplier. I did manage to grab a ROHS sheet for the device, but we are unable to locate a datasheet for this discontinued item. https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/a48bc-4971.jpg

What do I use to connect the adaptor to the cd-rom, does it connect directly on or is there a ribbon connector - if a connector - do you stock these?
Asked by: Anonymous
Connects directly to CDROM, then any IDE cable can be used.
