What does it take to spin up an IDE hard drive? Here's the scenario... You're at a swapmeet or garage sale or picking up a drive you bought on Craigslist. Me: "Is it free of bearing noise?" Seller: "Oh yeah, was my brother's primary drive." Note, the question was completely avoided... And you get it home and it sounds like an airplane taking off. If you plug in power, most IDE dr...

Toying with the idea of replacing an HD with a usb stick, to reduce power usage, weight, heat, size, etcetera. There are lost of adaptors that let you plug a drive into a usb port; is there an adaptor that does the reverse? The board in question (Series 1 Tivo) has no USB port, just an IDE connector.

As someone pointed out a while back while the Arduino toolchain seems to be very popular for developing hobbyist embedded applications for AVR/ARM, but the API and IDE is kind of a mess. The API is a bastardized subset of C++ where a lot of things don't work and which most users only use to write kludgey, procedural C-like code; you have C-like global functions such as "digitalWrite" whi...

Hello, As mentioned in a previous post, I need to store non-trivial amounts of data (> 100kB) over longer periods of time, using a stand-alone controller-based system. I got the advice here to look into MMC cards, which, contrary to SD cards, don't require licensing and other strings attached. Now I've taken a more in-depth look at what's involved in using MMC cards, and I find that I the

Just some thoughts that may help someone. To get started I would recommend the Nano. You just need it , a usb cable, and the IDE downloaded. The Nano has a usb chip on the module. No hassles about connecting. The pro mini does not have a usb chip, but is otherwise the same. To use it you need a usb to TTL adapter. I bought an adapter with a FDTI232 chip and could not get
