So far I found out that the hard drive that I have inside of my Mega STe 4 is
a Seagate ST-157N. Since it's an SCSI drive then the controller card should
support any other SCSI hard drive of the same size. Now, in concern that I
might damage something inside my computer (my experience in electronics is
close to nil) I never did open my Mega STe 4. I would like to upgrade this
ST-157N to something with greater capacity but before I do that I would like
to know what size and what type of hard drive I can replace my old drive with.
Specifically, I need to know the size; is it 3.5" or 5.25"? I know that the
new drive has to have parity disable, but I don't even know what it means.
I am a bit on defensive side here. Ready to take all the sneers that will
probably come my way but I believe that if I am to learn something I've got
to ask the questions.
Will someone please give me an in-depth explanation or direct me where I can
look for that info myself?
I would really appreciate your effort.
