you confused me for a moment with connecting 44 pin onto MoBo. i looked on two MoBos intel and amd and haven't found 44pin connector.
i saw these convertors here http://www.logicsupply.com/categories/cables/data_storage
but im shore i cant find 'em in my country. i'll keep on looking, maybe that can solve the problem
if anybody else have any ideas, don't be shy
