Yo.

Can anyone in Australia assist with a 2 to 4 gig SCSI (50 pin) hard drive please? Would like standard height (same height/thickness as todays IDE and SATA drives)

Many, many thanks in advance! (y)

Matt.

Just to let you know 50 Pin ones of these sorts of capacities are pretty rare since 50 Pin SCSI's where very old by the time GB drives became the norm. Really, they never actually had the chance to become cheap.

Best of luck.

Hi all,

I have located a 9gb SCSI drive locally, so this thread can be closed.

I would like to thank everyone who offered a drive. It's appreciated!!

My next challenge is to work out how use drives bigger than 4 gig...

Matt.

The A4000 can identify and partition up to 8 Gigabytes of space, but be certain to place the boot partition within the first 4 gigabytes of the hard drive. I think the term for the hard drive style you were looking for is called half height, as a full height drive literally takes up a 5 1/4 drive bay, but of course I could be wrong. Congrats on finding a 9GB half height SCSI 2 drive, but of course I could be wrong. The largest I have seen here has been 2 Gigabytes. But Kansas really is a technologically dead zone. The computer job I had to do earlier was to fix a 486 DX2 -66 for a gentleman who couldn't understand that his files were stored on the hard drive and not in his motherboard. Arrgghhh! It's jobs like those that make your brain feel like it is turning to liquid and oozing out your ears. Consequently, if anyone can find me the BIOS restore disk for 486 AST machines, I would be super happy.
