I happen to have a few WD and ST series ones but they are native ide-8
and no bit change for 16bit. 8bit IDE is true oddball and I really doubt
was much in the way of adpotion.

doing 8bit conversion takes a bit of logic and the direct 8bit IDE looks
appealing until you try to use them... They didn't standardize! I gave up
on them.
