I had soldered the USB connector on, and saw one pin had popped out. It was the fracking ground pin. I think I got it soldered in, I'll have to check it before powering up the board.
I didn't have 14-pin sockets, so I soldered that one chip to the board. I'll have to get some for the next board.
Like the CF board for my XT ( http://www.lo-tech.co.uk/wiki/Lo-tech_ISA_CompactFlash_Adapter_revision_2 ), this was a snap to assemble. I hope James develops a Model I version soon.http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcforum/showthread.php?37717-Cheapo-IDE-interface-for-Model-4p-running-MM-CP-M&p=300166#post300166-[ Al ]-
