Hi All,

I just purchased a 15K 73 gig SCSI Hard Drive hoping to upgrade from a 10K 9 gig SCSI. Only I didn't know that there where different "pin" sizes? My 9 gig SCSI is a 68 pin and the 73 gig is an 80 pin. The 80 pin only came with the Hard Drive and nothing else, no cable and no board.

So, my question is how does one use an 80 pin in/on a 68 pin SCSI board and cable? Is there an adapter of some sorts? This is what I found on eBay for some kind of adapter. Does anyone know if this adapter on eBay is what I'm looking for? And how do you use this adapter if it is the one I'm looking for? Or am I looking for something different. Remember that I have everything, board and cable, for a 68 pin setup already, not 80 pin.

Thank you.

John :thumbsup:

Hi,

Thanks very much that's just where I was looking, only being unfamiliar with this I wasn't sure if this is what I was looking for. Sense you know it is I'm sure that I'll figure out how to use it once I get it.

I'm looking forward to trying ou the 15K. Thanks.

John

If you have any questions, ask. The adapter(s) come with a little pinout/jumper sheet.
