I have IDE interface and purchased a 80 pin ultra SCSI HDD. How do i go about using this drive on my pc? I have searched for something that will convert the SCSI Ultra 320 drive to IDE cable but.............nothing.
You will probably need a SCSI PCI card
An 80 Pin interface is not Ultra SCSI but SCA. You can find SCSI to IDE converters for about $50 - $100 but a cheaper way to go is get yourself an UW SCSI controller card. A good card is the Adaptec AH 2940UW - $10 - $25.You will also need an SCA to UW adapter and they run about $4 - $20.http://www.centrix-intl.com/
