Default SATA CF Adaptor - Where to buy locally?

Hi guys, I need internal SATA Compact Flash II (CFII) adaptors. 3.5" form factor is preferred for our application. This is not for laptop use.

Can some body tell me from where I would be able to source this locally? Links, addresses or phone numbers are much appreciated. Bangalore/Chennai/Cochin/Trivandrum or anywhere within India it doesn't matter.

Thanks.

Are you planning to use CF II as bootable Hard disk? I have heard that it fails after some time due to excessive r/w's

Yes. But it won't have many read write operations on it. There is another normal SATA hard drive for the read write operations that will take place.

Actually this is for an entirely different purpose, it's not for a PC.

You can get IDE-CF(Electrically compatible) converters for dirt cheap. Not sure about the availability of SATA. In bangy look at SP Road.

Yes IDE CF converters are available but it's not what i want. SATA CF adapters are available abroad, importing will be the only option if we couldn't find it here.

The cost in Ebay seems to be double the price one can get abroad. Also, my friend requires in bulk. So, a shop would be better. Thanks anyway.
