I am looking for a link to the manual of a 8" floppy drive YEDATA model YD-180/1601.
If somebody have this.

Fabien,

From memory this was a SCSI 8" DSDD drive half height. But I dont have the manual. :-(

No manual here, either--but it's not SCSI, even if it does have a 50 pin edge connector on it. Just the old Shugart standard 8" connector. Half-height drive--ISTR that these were used on several popular early Japanese systems.

Thanks for your answers. The YE-180 isn't SCSI and I can connect it to a 486 as it is describe here: http://www.classiccmp.org/dunfield/img14256/cnct.htm

You can see the home-made connector and the boot from the 8" floppy

What I would known, is the utility of the differents jumpers on the floppy.

The YD-180 is identical to the Qume 242

Adding to this old thread for anyone else like me that found it via a search.

I managed to find a PDF of the actual YD-180 manual here: http://www.classiccmp.org/hp/ye%20data/YD180_~1.PDF

(It wasn't on bitsavers.org)

Something I've wondered about--who made the drive? YED or Qume? I'm guessing YED.
