Bizarre. This is _never_ the right answer for any PARIDE related problem.
ECP is not supported.

It is just an IDE (ATA) disk, but there seems to be some special magic that
is required.

Unfortunately, I'm not keeping up with all the tasks on my list now, so
I haven't considered picking up the CF and SSFDC readers as a new project.

I did work with someone last year to get a specific shuttle based SSFDC
reader working, but the hacks didn't fit well into PARIDE, so I have never
followed up on it.

The first requirement to work on this is that you have a _DOS_ (not windows)
driver for the gizmo. Then you have to be able to persuade the DOS
driver to work under DOSemu.
