Posted by bytewrench on May 24 2006,00:31I have one of the "Damn Small" nano boxes, and just got my CF adapter in. The CF Adapter has a place for power (floppy style). But I see no where on the board to supply the power? How do I get power to the adapter ?
Posted by 300c_pilot on May 24 2006,01:28I would make a trip to the local parts store and buy the 4 wire power to 2 wire power adapter. Its a 5 volt adapter. If you have an old computer laying around, you could make one if you are handy with tools.
