I'm a little late to the game as I mostly just hang out on the forums for
rockbox and iriver, but I'm definitely interested in purchasing an IDE->ZIF
adapter. As long as I could get it for under 60USD with shipping, it would be
worth it to me to have something manufactured by a reputable company as opposed
to a CF card/ZIF cable I've hacked up.
As for testing, I'd be happy to help test out with patches. My programming
knowledge is pretty limited, but I'd be happy to help out in whatever way I can.
