USB to IDE Controller

Hi all, I have seen devices that allow the connection of IDE drives to USB ports.

I was wondering if the reverse is possible, to allow the connection of a USB mass storage device to the Amiga IDE controller?

Theoretically it is possible, but there is no hardware available to do it. It's not as simple as using a USB to IDE controller in reverse because the circuitry inside isn't designed to work that way.

It's called reverse IDE and it is patented
