Here's a good one!!
I bought a GCT off ebay from LiguidateIT (great deal!) Got it in and pulled the cover... and saw the IDE header factory soldered on!! I thought O-BOY! GREAT !
So anyhow, I got busy and had to set it aside for a week or so, I get around to hooking a drive up tonight and I have fought the thing for two hours trying to get it to work with no luck! Well I made two cables, tried a different drive, then put everything in another GCT and it worked fine! I glanced at the header, and what I thought at first was just pin 22 missing for proper alignment I realized was pin 25!! They cut a pin off the header to disable the IDE! (Can you say i-Opnener??).
Now I trying to decide if I should just remove the header and solder a new one on or solder just the one cut pin. The factory solder job is clean, I am a little fearful of messing up the pads removing the old cut header, anyone got any advice on this situation??
