Very true. I think it is Storage Module Drive actually.

But they built an additional controller half the size of two drives ( for the
RM05) so I'm not sure you could use it as a straight SMD drive even if you
wanted to. It looks like MASSBUS to the Vaxen.

Companys like Hitachi, Seagate(Imprimis/CDC) and Fujitsu now makes small,
beautiful and fast SMD drives, so you can put fast low power disks on your
old SUN etc. Probably not worth the effort on an Amiga. One could buy it and
trade it for a SCSI disk if the price is right.


Now working at Nobel Tech, managing networks,still reading
news at the Royal Institute of Technology.


1. SMD Interface!>??

Hi Guyz, its me again...
  I was reading this ad from a computer liquidator... they is
selling Hitachi's 670 meg hard drive for $599... but it needs
SMD interface... huh... is there away to hook one up to a
A3000... how about an A500?  I think over half a gig for under
$600 is a great deal?  What you say?
