 I thought they were somehow "ATA compliant". I
assume you're talking about the interface between the drive and the
controller, right?

The issue is what data bus width is assumed during DMA transfers.
16 bits is 'normal'. Apparently, it was possible to do 8 bit DMA
transfers on early drives. I've not looked at the interface for
CF. Guess it's possible 8 bits is supported there as well.
