I found the paperwork from when they shipped me mine.  It's from "MCE
Technologies, LLC", http://www.mcetech.com and info at mcetech.com, phone
+1 949 458 0800, fax +1 949 458 1803, and the device is STA-IDESCSI25,
a `2.5" IDE to SCSI Adapter' for which they charged me USD 20.00 each.
(All this is as of "8/30/2007"; I don't know how much of that info is
still accurate now.)

I have one that's relatively accessible; I took a picture, with a
laptop disk next to it for scale.
ftp.rodents-montreal.org:/mouse/misc/STA-IDESCSI25.jpg.  The "riser" at
the back, into which the IDE drive plugs, is actually a small removable
card; an IDE laptop cable could be used instead if you don't want the
drive mounted so the adapter turns it into a thicker drive.

My only relationship to MCE Technologies is that of happy customer to
