Compact Flash SCSI (50 pin) adapter?

I know you can get a CF IDE adapter which, I've witnessed, works very well with the A600, but how about one for a 50pin SCSI interface?

Specifically, I would like to implement such a solution in my 500XP HDD box for the A500, as opposed to a rather unstable and noisy SCSI harddisk.

Another solution would probably be a SCSI to IDE adapter and then a CF IDE adapter on top of that, but I somehow doubt that would work

It will work. (CF IDE is 100% passive adapter)

I have ACard SCSI IDE + CF IDE in my SupraDrive500XP and CDTV, both work fine.

@rkauer

I know! It's hillarious. Just bought an A600 in mint condition for the same price yesterday

Eventually it will turn up on Ebay with a fair price to go along I hope

You can get these from EBay too, but the shipping fees are steep unless you live in the US.

... which you do, I notice

You should buy one from fleabay then. They go for USD30, which is dirt cheap compared to Vesalia.
