I've seen straight IDE 40pin to 44pin adaptors
(the power leads being separated out)
So using a standard header an 40pins flatcable to te adaptor
might solve that problem.

I had them with a 2.5" to 3.5" slidemount but the adaptor
was kinda removable. I don't think i still have it but they
do exist out there.
