I just now bought a SCSI adapter and a SCSI zip drive and a USB-SCSI adapter. So I don't need this hard drive. But anyone else who needs one could bid on it. I"m not the seller btw.

Oh snap! This one's a hard drive that comes with a SCSI adaptor.

Actually that is a profile drive with the profile controller. It's not SCSI.

Gee, I have a Profile Controller (thanks, T). Anyone tossing out a profile drive? :)

Okay, I'll bite. It isn't a SCSI hard drive? What's the difference? Can you daisy chain profile devices?

Nope, it was something else altogether. :-) See:

What's the difference?
Encoding technologies, drive electronics, interface technologies.

Can you daisy chain profile devices?
The Wikipedia article seems to indicate you could hook up a couple of ProFiles using a single parallel interface.

You seem to learning all about the diferent interfaces for HDs on the Apple II the hard way. The only one That you have not brought up is the CMS interface card.

I do have a Pro File that I will be Ebaying in the next couple days. Is your card for a 5 meg or 10 meg Porfile. The one I will be auctioning is a 10 meg one. It is missing the back pannels, condition is unknown, but the ready light comes on solid after around 30 seconds or so. The case is in grear shape. I cleaned off all of the spary paint markings of large letters on it. Will be start the selling price at $9.99.

I haven't really looked at it that closely. It's the the box marked "Misc. Cards to Test", but, I'll dig it up and do some research on it.
