Hey everyone,

I would like to get one or two 50-PIN SCSI hard drives if anyone has some spares sitting around. I would prefer somewhat quiet drives with at least 500MB but I don't want to spend much on them. Please let me know if you've got anything. :)

Thanks!

Heather

I have some 50-pin SCSI hard drives knocking around, but they're all 20MB and 40MB drives.

Thanks Woodycool, I appreciate the sentiment but those drives are just too small. My very first hard drive ever was 80MB. :)

Absolutely fine, I just thought I'd mention it 'in case' you weren't bothered about size.
These old drives have come out of GVP HD8+ units and off Commodore A2091 cards (I had a few at one point, but only have one A2091 now .... kept the GVP HD8+s though, as I upgraded the drives in them)

Hi Heather. :)

I have a 1GB Quantum SCSI affair here somewhere.

Talk to me via PM if you're interested. ;)

I have a box of 68 Pin drives, that I have tested to work with 50 pin adapters. Would some of those work for you?

@Kin

I'm sending you a PM. :)

@Nathan

Do you know where to find the adapters and do you know if they are very expensive? That may be a good solution if the adapters are not too much.

Thanks!

Usually the 68 to 50 pin SCSI adapters aren't too bad, I got mine locally for a good price but your price may vary (I won't be more accurate that that as I don't want to be yelled at again.) I don't know how much they are locally. There are many sites on the web selling them new. Check Amazon, they have some for a good price. You're resourceful, I know you can find them for a good price.

Sincere Apologies Heather & some rather serious face palm here....

The 1GB Quantum SCSI Drive I thought I did have is in my SCSI hard drive box; ....But it's not SCSI, ....It's IDE. :Doh:

Charlie

/....Kin makes mental note that he has no more 50 pin scsi hard drives....

Oh well. :( I did recently find some 40GB 78-Pin SCSI drives in my collection so I guess I'll have to just pick up some adapters. :) I still wouldn't mind a 50-PIN drive at some point so I'll leave this thread open for a while longer.

Thanks for looking, Charlie!

What size are you looking for? I have a large assortment from old Macs, varying in size. Most around 2gig..

Hey everyone!

Yes, I saw the ones Tom was offering but I was hoping to find some larger HDs. :)

@glf

2GB drives would be wonderful. PM me with what you have available. :)

Thanks!

Hi Heather, I have a 4.2GB Seagate Barracuda hard drive. it is a ST15150N/ND type 50-pin with on disk termination. It is a bit loud and postage may be a killer as it is heavy.

If interested I can test it and format it.

Is there any quiet SCSI drives?
Oh and you don't love that whine they make...lol

Only newer ones I guess, I have 105MB Quantum LPS drive in my A530 and this is very noisy and gets very hot.

You might want to search for a Seagate ST318418N, that is a 18,5 GB drive which I was told should be quiet and fast.

Thanks everyone. :) I think I'll just close this thread for now as it's not a high priority for me. I'm also going to try some of the adapters to use a newer SCSI drive on the system.

Thanks!

Heather
