If it's really 68 pins, it's WideSCSI not IDE.

Ain't no such animal. Gotta be a wide SCSI 2 connector if it has 68 pins.
IDE is 40 pins. Compaq did have a few machines with SCSI CD ROM drives.

Hi,
thanks for the reply. The connector is not like a Wide SCSI. Its
actually on a slim CD from an Armada Laptop and has a Mylar pcb to
take the connections down to a miniature 40 pin connector. If you
search on the web for "compaq 68 pin " there are a few clearance
houses selling this type of cd but they don't respond to my queries.
thanks
