Default 3.5" > 2.5" IDE Connector converter?

Does anyone know where one can buy a converter cable from 3.5" ide (desktop hd) to 2.5" ide (laptop hd/cd)? The pin layout is exactly the same, and making my own would be too time consuming.

It would be nice to connect my laptop hd / dvd to my Via Epia miniATX mobo.

I've seen them around, compaq uses them and I've used one myself @ work for ghosting laptop HD's

best check with big distributors to acquire info on where to get these.. www.techdata.be ?

Great find, thx.

Ordering 2 = 25 euro a piece (including tax and shipping) :/

JMke, can't you lend a few from work?
