    Default MFM/RLL/ESDI controller cards for sale

    I have a bunch of MFM/ESDI/RLL controller cards for sale, including some SCSI cards. Most are 16 bit, but I have some 8 bit, including everyone's favorite, the IBM XT Xebec cards. I'm thinking $10 is fair, and there are too many cards to list. I'm realizing I need to start downsizing some of my collection, as I'll never use all these cards.

    Lots of Western Digital and Adaptec cards, but some other vendors as well (that use WD or Adaptec chipsets). Not all are tested, but of the ones I've used, I haven't really come across any that are bad.

    These came from the company in Southern California where went through about 3-4 pallets of hard drives and tested them. There were about 1-2 pallets of controller cards, of which I've personally used some of them for testing, along with other things mixed in.

    Turns out I have more cards for sale (not hard drive controllers), which necessitates another thread...

    Do you happen to have an OMTI SMS Scientific Micro Systems 8610 or 8627 ESDI ISA drive controller? I've been looking for one for a while.

    Don't believe I've seen that brand before. I think what I've got are Western Digital ESDI, another brand that starts with an F (I think, and not Future Domain), whose name I can't remember right now, some Adaptecs, and possibly some others. ESDI actually seemed to be the least common cards I've found.

    Thanks for looking. It seems to be an elusive part.

    You said you had some WD cards, did you happen to have a 61-031099?

    Should look something like this -

    I'm pretty sure I do. I'll be out of town this week (and was out of state last week), but I'll try and check next week when I'm back.

    I honestly picked up way too many of these controller cards, but I didn't want to see them all get scrapped.

    I just looked at that photo again, and I may or may not have this exact card. I now just forgot if the WD cards I have are 8 or 16 bit ISA.
