Any one have any old ide drives?

I have some too, but I'm curious why you would use them since you can get a CF card + adapter for crazy cheap, they're faster, quieter, and will likely outlast the spinning rust.

I've got:

Western Digital Caviar: 1170, 2250, 2340, 1365 and 2420

Seagate: ST3096A (80MB)

This is what I think I have. This list may not be completely accurate, i.e., there may be others or one I have listed may not be available. But until I do an exhaustive check this is close.

I've got 320MB and 540MB drives I'm not using. Again, a 512MB CF card+adapter is what I would personally use, but if you really want an IDE drive, send me an email and we can work something out.

I've got a bunch, mostly Conner and Quantum, ranging from about 300MB to 500MB. But I'd have to test them to see if they still work--I haven't touched some of them for about 20 years. All are 3.5" models (There were early small-capacity 5.25" ATA drives, as well as later larger (2GB+) drives like the Quamtum Bigfoot)

Spinning rust indeed.
