It works :) 

Please see
Missing is the ML-file that also describes the connections. The ML-program
enabled me to stop and start the motor of the HD on command. This on itself
prooves the connection workes. 
Now someone has to write an OS for it. And that will cost time.... 
The only way one can address such a drive is using the Kernal. So any
program addressing a IEC-drive using its own routines never will see the HD.
I cannot afford to spend time to such an incompatible device :(

Idea: hack the one of IDE64 :)
