Happy Holidays and New Year.
Is it possible to control an external IDe device with a PIC?
do special chips, etc already do this?
I'm interested in an answer as well. I love hacking on old stuff and I
have a couple of 100Mb IDE drives and a 16F877 just waiting to relate on
a deeper level.

Look at this page:
It's a unfinished project. Conects IDE port with a Intel 8255 chip. Perhaps
this page give you some ideas.
Sorry my bad english and happy new year, Javier Martinez.
I've seen projects where someone has an 8-bit micro talking to an IDE
drive, so definitely, yes; Some of us'll have to quit being lazy & jsut
implement that monster sometime!
I imagine you could mutate the code here:
http://www.blkbox.com/~jdbaker/SmallSys/8bitIDE.html, he has a lot of
good info on this. I may do that locally with someone, but he likes
Atmel's so may be on that platform.
I'm sure I could search and find more similar code out there, so can you

How about using PICs to make a poor-man's RAID controller instead of having
to use software RAID (not as good performance) or a commercially available
hardware RAID controller (too expensive)? This may have to be with SCSI instead
of IDE, but has anyone pursued this at all?
