I'm trying to set up a Fujitsu MAG3091LC disk as external storage for my
Sun Ultra 2. I've bought a SCSI SCA 80-pin to 50-pin adaptor and
installed the disk in a standard 50-pin SCSI box, but I can't get it to
work. The disk spins up when switched on but "probe-scsi-all" doesn't
find the disk (there is no entry in the listing at all). I know the disk
works as I've tested it in one of my internal bays, and I've checked
there's no conflict of SCSI IDs. I've also tried the disk and adaptor in
a second external disk box, which I know to be in good working order,
but it gives the same result. The adaptor itself is extremely simple so
I'd be surprised if it was broken. Has anyone had similar problems with
these adaptors? Perhaps there's something simple which I'm missing?
Any help would be much appreciated.
PS: I'm also looking for an external SCSI box to house a zip drive.
Does anyone in the UK have a surplus box they'd be prepared to sell
cheaply? Sun, Mac or PC, 50- or 68-pin, pretty much anything will do. A
broken Sun or Apple CD-Rom would be fine if the drive could be removed
from the case.
