I really dont know exactly what you mean, sorry ^^
large wires on the sata adapter have problems working on the Dreamcast.
Yep, same for my CF reader.
I have the pcb with IDE port which you can solder on the bottom of the GD-drive.
I noticed that if I use a 80-wire IDE cable to my CF reader it would work great.
But when I would cut up a 40-wire IDE cable to solder directly to the CF reader (which is now built into the case), the wires need to be really short or else I get all kinds of loading and freezing errors.
Also make sure you use proper wires for ground, preferably thicker stranded wires.
