recycled wrote:SCA CD-ROM you say! They must be a particularly rare jem, I've been a SCSI fan-boy for as long as I've had computers of my own and I've never seen one, so expect to be charged a kings ransom when you track one down. Sure you can't get by with a standard SCSI narrow 50 pin IDC style drive?

You're right; my mistake. Only the hard drives are SCA. The CD-ROM just uses the 50 pin SCSI-2 connector.

Not sure if it's what your after or not?

It has since arrived but is the wrong type - not SCSI at all but ATAPI (IDE) which I can't use
