There are adapters that you can use, I found a number of them when I googled 80 pin hdd connector adapter to 68 pin connector.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

no

Compatible with SCA & SCA-2 80Pin SCSI Devices!


doesn't your motherboard have any ide connectors?

wait, your new hard drive is scuzzi?

it should work if it is? or if it's an ide with 80 conductor cable(40 pins) then you need an ide connector

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Your drive is SCSI your board is IDE. You will need a SCSI to IDE adapter. Make sure the one you chose is compatible with your computer, your operating system and your drive. Make sure its the right type of IDE either 40 pin for older computers or 68 pin Ultra ATA found in modern computers. Here is a tutorial I found on how to take apart the case and install the drive Tutoral. Although if you found out you need an adapter you probably already have the case apart :thumbsup:
