    Plugged Parallel into SCSI hard drive

    I accidentally thought that a zip drive was scsi but it was parallel and i plugged it into my scsi external hard drive which was plugged into my mac plus!!! And now it wont read or detect the disk. I tested it on another mac and it didn't detect it either. My question is did the enclosure, drive, or Macintosh break? Can i get a new scsi drive and plug it into the enclosure?

    2008 macbook pro any good?

    Yes, i reapplied thermal paste a week ago, it got a bit better. For some reason i never looked at activity monitor till now and it said youtube is eating my cpu. Also is the fan loud on the macbook pro?

    2008 macbook pro any good?

    I need a macbook to just watch youtube and use the web. I was looking around and i think this whould be the right choice (https://everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-2-duo-2.6-15-early-2008-penryn-specs.html) But i want to hear form people that use it. Do you recommend a macbook like this for youtube and browsing the web? I also want to know if the fans will run fast when watching youtube because thats the problem i have with my older macbook. The only computer i have that runs more loud is my xserve!!

    Scsi hard drive problems

    The zip drive was parallel ]'> but i think the drive is broken not the port because i tried it in a different enclosure and different mac and the drive didn't work. is there anyway i could fix it?

    Scsi hard drive problems

    I recently found a iomega zip 100 drive at a thrift store so i hooked it to the mac then the zip drive had a port for the hard drive so i plugged it in. Now the computer will not reconize the hard drive. I tested it with another macintosh plus and even another hard drive enclosure but it still wont detect it! The hard drive is also terminated.
