    Default IBM Model WD-325N Type 30, 20MB ESDI Hard Drive

    Drive appears to be in good physical condition, but unfortunately I don't have a system that can run this type of drive. It came from Computer Reset, so it has been in storage for a very long time.
    If anyone has the drive's pinout, I'd be happy to apply power to see if it spins up.

    Local pickup ok as well!

    That's actually an MFM drive.

    this drive might be too new to matter, but in general I wouldn’t power up an old drive unless it’s got self parking heads or you’ve got a way to park them. I’d think Ps/2 era drives would self park, but I could be wrong.

    Yes, after a little more digging, it appears that it is a proprietary interface for the PS/2 Model 50! Definitely had me fooled. In any case, I still don't have a way to test it!

    It's a DBA-ESDI interface drive, so would fit a Model 70 too.
