ISO: external scsi enclosure, 68 pin UW disk, USB or FireWire attached
Posted on 2007-07-31
I need to access data on an older 68 pin ultra wide scsi drive, using my notebook computer.
The notebook has USB and FireWire ports, and two PCMCIA/ CardBus slots.
I've found that a major scsi adapter manufacturer makes 2 PCMCIA/ CardBus adapters, but they both end with a 50 pin connector.
I've talked with a technical fellow at that manufacturer, and he recommended against using this card for this disk, because using an adapter will be problematic. He instead recommended using an external enclosure that was FireWire or USB attached.
This may be a completely impossible and/ or ridiculous and/ or mutually exclusive quest, but I'm looking for an external enclosure that will accept a 68 pin Scsi disk, but can be communicated with the computer using either a USB or FireWire cable.
Any guidance you can lend is greatly appreciated!
