What the heck is this thing? Super-Mini Centronix?
Posted on 2000-02-21
I have a HD here I found in an office i was cleaning out belonging to a coworker. I know its a SCSI drive, but i've never seen a connector like this.
Picture the standard 68 pin UW scsi connector (LVD style). Now invert it. Now instead of pins make little tabs like a centronix connector. Now make it small. Its basically a 68/UW shaped mini centronix connector.
What gives? I've never seen something like that, and my local parts shop (Action Computers) didn't have anything even remotely like a cable or adapter for it.
FWIW the drive is a CONNER CFP1060S. I've already downloaded the spec sheet from seagate but it merely says SCSI connector.
First person to explain it in such a fashion as to make me stop wondering "WTF" wins.
