Hard drive (IDE) interface & sketch

Fri Jan 09, 2015 8:53 pm

Does anyone know of an interface (shield) and control program (sketch) for either Arduino or Raspberry PI B+ that can transfer files from an old IDE hard drive to either SD card or USB flash drive?

Or something like it. The power supply on mine failed because the two parts of the transformer in it were not glued together. Also there was no input filtering causing interference on the radio!. A replacement proper power supply and it works fine!
