That connector looks more like a PCMCIA connector to me. There are at least
two types of PCMCIA FLASH cards: plain memory cards (which look just like a
big FLASH ROM chip to the host) and IDE compatible cards (which have an
internal controller chip that looks like a regular IDE disk to the host).
AFAIK, Compact FLASH cards are all IDE type cards.
