I use a Quantum Atlas 10k III SCSI hard drive with a 68 pin to 50 pin on a A4000 with a A4091 SCSI card and it works without any problems.

I also used the same drive using a CyberstormPPC, without the adapter of course, before I fried the board due to my incompetence, and it worked flawlessly.

I got my adapter at The Mate Company

have a look and check the jumpers, there may be a jumper configuration on the drive that will either disable the top 8 data lines, or switch ON auto termination.

(only problem being that you have to have the drive at the end of a narrow scsi chain, not too much of an issue for PC people as they usually only have one or two SCSI drives, or a stack of drives sat on an ultra SCSI bus)

if that doesn't work, then it can't handle not having the top 8 data lines unterminated, so the less cable you have between it and the controller the better. other than that, and you have a duff 68-50 way adapter. mate of mine had a duff one and fried my optiplex 2.6G removable optical drive. yay

other than testiong it on something with a 68pin scsi bus, i'm out of suggestions.

Well I found a source of these drives. I don't have one I can look at, the link to seagate takes you to the drive quick configs and there is more info there also. These drives are selling for about $10 a piece or 4 for $30.

Thanks
James

@Frostwolf

a 23GB UWSCSI at that prices? are you sure? is a bit ancient (5400 rpm 13.2 ms average) but . . .

Anyway, the right links are:

http://www.seagate.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi?/scsi/st423451.w

and

http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/scsi/st423451w.html

Ciao

Correct Link to the Seagate drive in question

Thanks for pointing that out, not sure how it ended up on the wrong drive.
The one I'm looking at is a full height drive

Price depends on quantity I order. I run my own online computer store and will still honor the coupon (amione) I give for amiga users a couple of months ago. I don't have amigaones ,Yet.

Default Re: SCSI Hard Drive question(FIXED LINK)

My SCSI setup. I have a 9 connector (68 pin) cable. Devices from one end of the cable to the other.....

1. Terminator
2. External adapter, (50 pin dense) connector to add one external device.
3. Cyberstorm PPC (68 pin of course)
4. Western Digital WDE2170 (68 pin) hard drive
5. Yamaha CRW6414S (50 pin) CD-RW
6. NEC CDR-1410A (50 pin) CDROM
7. Western Digital WDE4360 (80pin) hard drive
8. Seagate ST32171N (50 pin) hard drive
9. Terminator

The NEC CDR is occassionally swapped out for a SCSI Zip drive.

On a side note if anyone nows a source for the 68 pin connectors to add onto the cable I'd appreciate that information. Would love to just leave the Zip drive in.
