    SCSI Hard Drive

    Someone will be giving me a 147gb Maxtor scsi hard disk, but I don't have any scsi ports on my system.

    What type of adapter and/or cables would I need to get this working for my system? I do have extra pci ports available.

    You will need a SCSI card. They used to be expensive, but may have goine down by now. There are a couple different SCSI versions, so it depends on what specific hard drive it is.

    I'm not quite sure if this is the exact one, but it may be it.

    I won't be able to get the drive till Saturday or so. It is a brand new one and a 147gb in size. All it will be is a barebone drive, no cables or anything else.

    That uses a 68-pin wide scsi adapter. you need a card with that specification, and make sure it includes the cable.

    LOL-did you post over at LQ?? I almost answered that post when it was 0 response. Maybe I did. I forgot. :-[

    And might I add that its a U320, so maybe a U320 HBA is in order?

    Yes that was me over at LQ. ;D Man, and these things are expensive. I don't want to pay a whole lot for a controller. I got six wives and two kids to take care of! (j/k)

    Anybody know of some under $50?

    I'd recommend to get an Adaptec one from Ebay.

    Just make sure you have the right card for your drive. As long as the card is match to your drive's interface, you will do just fine.

    I have some SCSI cards laying around if you are interested. I will look for them if you want it. I believed that it's dual channel Ultrawide and WideSCSI formats. Let me know if you want me to give you the exact spec and model number.
