Arduino connected to Hard drive?

Anybody know how to wire up an arduino to a hard drive so it can store data on it?

Thanks for your help aldwyn

I don't think that is possible. You need all kinds of driver hard and software to control a harddisk.

Try searching for ATmega and "ATA" or "harddrive IDE", looks like there's some stuff out there.


You'll likely find better results looking for code to control a compact flash card with an Arduino or AVR. The basic ATA and CF interface are identical.
