Connecting a hard drive to PDA

Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a HP iPaq 1900 that only has an SD card slot and an iPod hard drive with 20gb

and ata 6. SD cards are too expensive and I want to make use of my hard drive. Is

there a way you can think of that can connect the hard drive to the iPaq?




I was thinking of buying an SD card reader, connecting the SD card reader's circuits to the

PDA's card reader (I may post pictures to help explain the connection), allowing an SD card

placed in the commercial card reader to be read by the PDA. But the main point of this is to

use the USB on the end of the card reader to connect the hard drive via USB to ATA 6

adapter.

Do you think this will work, and do you know a method that might work?

I am just taking a stab at this, but even if you were able to connect it via SD, I don’t think the iPAQ would recognize it.

So you want to convert an ATA connection to an SD card "connector".

If thats the case and you did manage to get it all connected then jsg7377 is correct. The pda wouldn't recognise it.
