Announcing ZuluSCSI - A file-based SCSI device emulator

Correction: I meant to add that after programing the SCSI2SD with the utility, it then works on pretty much any SCSI-based Mac with little to no issues. Like most folks here, I've found the SCSI2SD drives to be game-changers with classic Macs.

The problem here is that ZuluSCSI _is not a SCSI2SD device_, nor is it advertised as such. I strongly recommend you read the manual linked above, and email us with any specific questions you may have, after doing so.

I just got a ZuluSCSI Mini in for my Mac Plus but I can't get it to not crash the machine. Both RaSCSI and BlueSCSI images cause the machine to hard reboot. I've tried several settings to no avail. The machine boots off an old SCSI hard drive and loads the entire 4MB of ram without crashing. Blank images don't crash the machine but don't show in OS which is correct I believe.

Can you try with the 6.0.8 image that you can download from https://www.savagetaylor.com/wp-content/uploads/68k_Macintosh/Bootdisks/608_2GB_drive.zip ?
On my Mac Plus, it boots to the Finder, but then the Mac bombs as I try to do almost anything (like just getting “Info about Macintosh” from the Apple menu).

Exact same. About info, immediate illegal instruction. Other apps cause infinite loop system errors.
Happens on my 8500 I was using to set it up, when it actually worked with the sd card I used. It didnt like the 32GB sd card I first used and would sad Mac my 475. The 8500 would start but bomb as soon as it started loading up.

You could try different SD cards?
 
Bought one and installed it on an Amiga - it was a 2000 with a GVP A2000HC+8 controller. Worked pretty good!

I made a 3.9GB disk image for use on a 4GB card and it was a bit of trial and error to generate a blank image that made sense because I forgot that disk geometry calculators were a thing.

I'll grab another one to try in a Mac.
