Need SCSI Drives!
« on: October 13, 2017, 01:42:34 PM »
I need a couple SCSI drives for old 68K mac's.
You know the old 50 pin ones.
Anything over 120 MB is fine.

Let me know your price.
I would be willing to trade a functioning eMate or Tangerine iBook (functional, but cosmetically challenged)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

Iíll call my warehouse on Monday and see what we have.
Is a 68 pin with a 50 pin converter ok?

That would be cool if you find anything.
The adapter route really isn't an options. There isn't enough room in there, and I have access to stuff at work and home to go that route.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

Perfect, I'll let him know that it can be 50 pin only. I'll see what we have.

Hi Nanopico, are you still looking for drives?

I know it took a while, but my guy dug out two ST31051N drives.
I'm planning to hook them up to an old PC based SCSI card and give them a low level format and a surface test.

Thoughts before I do that? Anything else you'd like me to do?
