Title: 1.8" hard drive pinouts, pin style and zif style
Post by: Myself on Nov 21, 2007, 21:38
It seems that the Toshiba 1.8" drives have a different pinout than the Hitachi 1.8" drives, and there's even a third one using a flat flex cable that fits into a latching ZIF connector. I found one:

Which, except for the power being 3.3v instead of 5v, is the same as a 44-pin laptop pinout. It's a smaller connector and female gender, so it looks like CF but is not the same pinout.

There's some good info here:

Would this be good to include on the site?
