View Full Version : Would this SCSI HD work in an IBM Model 70

Hey guys. Was wanting to see if one of you could tell me if this HD would work in a Model 70 with a SCSI Adapter

It's brand new, and under $20.

It is a "hot swap" drive, in a tray. Can the drive be removed from the tray.

According to the specs, your SCSI cards has a 50-pin interface. This drive appears to use a newer 80-pin SCA connector. So, no, that would not be a good match. (Theoretically it might work if you could find the right adapter but that would be a hassle)

Also, that drive appears to be intended for servers, would suck lots of power, and would be an overkill for a 386.

A bit more about the different internal hard drive interfaces here: http://www.easeus.com/resource/drive/scsi-drive.htm

Basically you just need to search for SCSI drives with 50-pin interfaces to match your card.

Yes that drive will work with one of the $2 adapters I mentioned in another post.
