View Full Version : Closed Wanted - Urgent SCSI Adapter

3rd December 2008, 22:25
Hello my friends.

Can anyone please help me out,
I am desperate for a SCSI adapter to go from a 50way HiDensity female connector (present on back of card) to a 25 way D'type socket (as per GVP SCSI cards) in order to hook up my Iomega SCSi Zip Drive to an Acorn RISC PC.

So in case I've confused you all just to clarify, a little Block with 50way Hi-Dens Male con on one side & a 25 way female D type socket on the other, oh & of course all the wires inside to make the relevent connections. :lol:

Would make my Day.....

Thanks all

Afaik, the cable should be male @ both ends Zeets!

Thanks Zetty & Kin

Let me try & explain my reasoning as you are both right.

As you know I'm a Miggy Man & my Miggy's SCSI ports are std GVP 25 way female ports.
All cabling to my various peripherals is based on this.

Now my Risc PC has this 50 way Hi-D Female socket, what I'm looking for is a little Block Gender changer type thingy which will basically transform my RISC PC's SCSi connection to appear just like my Miggy's GVP 25Way female Port.

Then I can just plug in all my existing cable sets & peripherals from my Miggys..

Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks guys

Just been checking my bag of SCSI cables & the best I can come up with is 25way to 50way Centronics or 50way to 50way. Soz! :|
