I use an HP Workstation x4000 in creating CAD models here at work. It is already an out-of-date computer and recently, I ran out of memory in my hard drive. It has specifications of 58 GB SCSI, 68pin HP. The IT technician who works in our company bought me a 1GB SATA Drive, Raid Card, just enough memory to load the MEC Card, and also the Norton Ghost to speed up the recent drive. But the problem is that, the card that he purchased cannot be put in the Mobo. My computer has a ribbon with an empty plug and also a power plug, however, both are intended for a 68 pin SCSI drive.
My question is: are there cables available in the market which I can utilize so that I can just plug our SATA hard drive to the 68 pin ribbon? Or I should buy another card? Do the markets manufacture such device?
My superior is very thrifty and he wouldn’t be happy to hear me ask him to change the very outdated computer. I would like to express my gratitude for any assistance you will provide me.
Cable for 68 pin SCSI drive
Hello! Yes you have many options. Just try one of the following steps:
Use the interface to straight connect to a 68 pin SCSI hard drive. This cable is not included with the DMU. You may
procure the voluntary SCSI Cable in a 10.50" length, "SCS3-4901-10T" or 16.75" length, "SCS3-4901-16T" the original DMU
units’ built-in a 68-pin SCSI cable. Its descriptions are:
·16.75 inch 1 device.
· RoHS Compliant.
·Comes with removable Ultra 320 Multimode Scsi Terminator.
·Made with Amphenol cable and Starconn connectors.
·Ultra 320 multimode LVD/SE.
·Fully backwards compatible with older SCSI technologies.
·Manufactured under ISO 9002 specifications.
·Supports data speeds up to 320 MBPS.
Your DMU integrated this cable, please discard it and procure one of the new cables above. The original DMU units
included a 68-pin SCSI cable. We found that the original cable was incompatible with some newer SCSI hard drives. If the
original DMU units included a 68-pin SCSI cable, we found that the original cable was incompatible with some newer SCSI
hard drives. If your DMU included this cable, please discard it and obtain one of the new cables beyond.
Hope this will help you and your superior will realize that our generations nowadays are all in brand new.
