I have Maxoptix T3-1300.
Advise which scsi pci controller to use better?

Any of them should be fine as long as you have drivers for the operating system you plan on using. Those drives should all be native 50 pin SCSI and are not too demanding on the interface card.

Where can I download the manual Maxoptix T3-1300?

The manual may be hard to come by for a 25-year old drive, but archive.org (http://web.archive.org/web/20010217003939/http://maxoptix.com/TechSupport/techapp.htm) does keep a list of app notes.

As far as PCI SCSI adapters go, it's hard to go wrong with an Adaptec 2940.

Thank you.
Adaptec 2940 Does the driver Windows XP exist? On the official website there is no information on this.

Windows XP incorporates the 2940 driver in its standard driver set. As I said, the card is/was very common--common enough the MS doesn't bother with demanding that the user supply a driver.

Thank you all for your answers.
I have Adaptec AHA-2940UW and 50-pin SCSI Internal Flat Ribbon Cable.
And do I need a terminator for plugging in 50 pins? How to connect correctly?
