Shouldn't the one with the opposite connector come from

Maybe that's a good alternate name for  They have a
lot of inexpensive stuff.  Mailed from Hong Kong (can easily take two

This says nothing about DMA.

One comment suggest that this one is built better:

A comment claims slow transfers with this, but a reply points out that
"no processing is performed by the adapter".

What is needed for DMA?  Is it at all a function of the adaptor?  DX
makes a point of mentioning it in describing this adaptor (which isn't
the right gender anyway):

DX also has SD to IDE adaptors.  That is a less-trivial operation and
so they are more expensive.  I imagine that a fast SD is slower than a
fast CF.  SD is a lot cheaper than CF.

I happened to throw in these with my last DX order but haven't even
opened the wrapper on them.  So I don't know if they are any good:

The silk-screening on 711 mentions DMA.
