If I remember it right, it is an IDE drive, and you can find adapters to a notebook ide form factor, or usb ones.

Here is a thread which indicates that the MK1234GAL was used in a Sony HDR-XR155 Handycam:

Here is the pinout of the 40-pin ZIF connector:

Long time no see !

Fun fact, I an external security / data protection compliance consultant for that company. I've also asked them for an adapter, but I fear that the pinout for this disk may be diferent from the ones they used, since this disk was from a Sony video camera.

I'll grab it tomorrow and I will test it and report back!

The following threads talk about replacing the CF card in an Acer Aspire One A110 netbook with either a Samsung HS030GB or HS06THB PATA/ZIF 1.8" HDD:

Acer Aspire One AOA110L (a.k.a. zg5) - replace SSD with Hard Drive:
https://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=11561.0

Modding the Acer Aspire One - hard drive (Samsung HS06THB):
https://tnkgrl.com/2008/08/16/modding-the-acer-aspire-one-hard-drive/

Samsung's datasheet would suggest that both models are Spinpoint N2B:

Spinpoint N2A/N2B - Ultra mobile PATA/ZIF - datasheet:
https://www.seagate.com/files/www-content/support-content/documentation/samsung/HS04THB.pdf

Here are the circuit diagrams for the netbook's motherboard:

ACER ASPIRE ONE A110 A150 QUANTA ZG5 REV 1A SCH:

http://monitor.espec.ws/files/aspire0nemb__rexonavn.com__361.pdf

The connector pinout seems to match the Toshiba's (except for pins 41 & 42 which are probably an error in the drawing).

Hey again,

So, the pinout provided by Frank was correct.

Imaging the drive now with MRT.

Just out of curiosity, did you test the adaptor that you would use on the 1.8 Samsung "Magalhães" drive ?

Does MRT Toshiba tool support that specific model of drive ? Can you dump the firmware out of it (CPs) with MRT ?

Regards.
