I've not used scsi devices before so need a push in the right direction with this one!
Recently got a Compaq DAT tape drive. It has a 68-pin Wide Female External connector on the rear which 'SCSI SE' above it.
I'm wanting to use this tape drive for test/proof of concept purposes - rather than company sensitive data, so the price of an adaptor card is more important than the speed.
I need some suggestions as to a suitable scsi controller card as i do not currently have one. I prefer to use one of adaptec products such as 2940's if it's possible ...are these any good? If not so which model u prefer? Also I would like to know the appropriate cable that I could use to connect both the controller and the tape device…
However, i would like to know the different scsi controller card 'features' which i could use with this drive.
Thanks in advance
