We just upgraded to an LTO4 drive but it is an internal drive and uses an SAS connection.
I looked up the connection cable (this is a refurbished product and came with no cables) which appears to be an SFF-8482 type connector.
It appears that the cables come WITH the power connector similar to the one on Newegg here:
The thing is:
The one in the link above comes with 2 SATA connectors. Am I supposed to be using both for this tape drive?
What I'm asking is am I supposed to use the SFF-8087 connector into the back of the tape drive and then take the 2 SATA connectors and plug them into the motherboard? Or do I only need one?
Also, there are some small additional connectors on the back of the tape drive which I am wondering what they are used for (see attached image).
I need to order a cable for this drive ASAP and assuming the one in the link is the one I need, I won't need any additional SCSI cards or anything like that, right?
Any help would be appreciated.
