hard drive compatibility
Posted on 2000-04-27
I have an old Compaq Deskpro XL 560 with a standard SCSI interface. I am looking to buy a big hard drive for it and have found a Seagate Elite-9, 5.25" Full Height 9gb SCSI-2 Hard Drive, 50-pin 11ms. Is this compatible and will I have to do anything special to install it? I had heard that you could put a SCSI-2 drive on a SCSI standard system but the person who told me so wasn't 100 percent sure and I didn't want to buy it without knowing for sure. I have tried to check with Compaq, but as the system has been discontinued for so long, the newest specs they had were from before hard drives broke the 4 gig limit. Any help would be appreciated.
