Addonics Dual CF-IDE Notebook Hard Drive Adapter AD44MIDE2CF, w/ Mini 44-Pin IDE Male Connector
This family of unique CF-IDE Hard Drive Adapters is designed to enable one or two Compact Flash (CFI/II) media to be used as direct replacement for the 2.5" IDE hard drive. As a result, any equipment, such as Notebook computer, that uses a 2.5" IDE hard drive can be easily converted to use the low power and shock resistant CF media. Once installed, the CF appears as an ordinary hard drive to any OS and can be configured as a boot device. The Dual CF-IDE Hard Drive Adapter contains a second CF slot for the slave position of the IDE channel, allowing increased storage capacity with the same low power consumption and solid state benefits of the CF card.

Notes: (1) * Media must be in the device during boot up. Media is not hot swappable. (2) ** The CF can be secured inside the hard drive cavity with a double face tape. A small piece of styrofoam block may also be shaped to fit and fill the extra space. This usually not necessary as the CF media is very light and the IDE connector makes a very tight connection that is highly unlikely to come loose. See following link for more detail.
