I don't know too much about SCSI, but I have a IOMega External Zip Drive, and a SIIG SCSI Pro PCI Adapter.  This is all well and good, but my 25 pin zip drive cable doesn't fit the High-Density - 50 connector on the card.  Clearly I need an adaptor,  I found an adaptor but this is where the confusion sets in....the adaptor talks about a 50 - pin Centronics port, so my question is......will this adapter work with my HD-50 card???

The connector you need to have is a Micro DB50 TO  DB25 male   and is a high density SCSI adaptor that looks like this---- \:::::::::::::::::::::::::/  
Here is a URL with the ordering information for a cable and adaptors of the same type are available

A centronics port looks like the adaptor that connects to your printer, most likely that is not what you are going to want or need.

you sure it aint a centronics (parallel) zip drive !!!

aparently the 25-pin SCSI version is for mac's.. but yes if it is a SCSI adapter and it physically fits.. it should work...

Make sure it is a SCSI zip drive and not a parallel drive.  A wrong connection will ruin your drive.
