To a first approximation, *NO* IDE drives will work with them.
8-bit support is not part of the official ATA specification. Even
back when 8-bit IDE adapters were being sold, not many drives worked
with them, and as soon as the adapters disappeared the drive makers
that had bothered to support them stopped doing so.
