OK, so a little while ago I saw a post on another site about using a hard drive on a NDS. The user used a compact flash GBAMP and he soldered the wired from the ide ribbon cable to the pins on the Compact Flash connector. He then used a superkey to load homebrew off of the drive; this works because an ide hard drive has the same pin out as a Compact Flash card however the pins are in different spots. I know for a fact that a GBAMP has no chips in it, I also know that a Compact Flash connector can be hand soldered into a DS for homebrew. My question is Does anybody know how to connect an ide ribbon cable directly to the edge connector on an old GBA cartridge? What I was thinking was if a hard drive can be connected to a Compact Flash connector, which can be connected to a GBA connector; can't the Compact Flash connector be bypassed allowing the ide cable to be soldered directly to the edge connector of a GBA card? If this can be done I would allow a cheaper way into the homebrew scene for many that are detoured by the money, because almost everybody has an old ide hard drive and a cable for it lying around.
