    2. Mac II, Quadra & Centris

      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • RJ-11 may be, but we bought phone cable from the dollar store 20 years ago fifty feet for a dollar. That worked.
    • Instructions also uploaded to https://github.com/akuker/RASCSI/wiki/Drive-Setup Feel free to make updates/corrections/clarifications!
    • Regular RJ-11 patch cables are "crossed over", they flip the tip and ring wires. Analog phones really don't care, don't know about PhoneNet.
    • Noted, like I said, should be available middleish of August
    • To start with, your "HDA" file can just be a file full of zeros. You can create it using the Linux dd command on your Pi pi@rascsi:~ $ dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/pi/new_drive.hda bs=4M count=100 100+0 records in 100+0 records out 419430400 bytes (419 MB, 400 MiB) copied, 22.4022 s, 18.7 MB/s pi@rascsi:~ $ BS is the block size and count is the number of blocks. So, the above command will make a 400MB drive. Block size doesn't really matter, but if you don't specify it, dd will default to 512 bytes, which will may take a lot longer to create the file.   Once you have the drive created, you need to command rascsi to include it. Pick an ID that isn't currently used in your system. In my case, I don't have an ID 0.  pi@rascsi:~ $ rasctl -l +----+----+------+------------------------------------- | ID | UN | TYPE | DEVICE STATUS +----+----+------+------------------------------------- | 1 | 0 | SCHD | /home/pi/harddisk.hda | 6 | 0 | SCCD | /home/pi/marathon.iso(WRITEPROTECT) +----+----+------+------------------------------------- pi@rascsi:~ $ rasctl -i 0 -c attach -t hd -f /home/pi/new_drive.hda pi@rascsi:~ $ rasctl -l +----+----+------+------------------------------------- | ID | UN | TYPE | DEVICE STATUS +----+----+------+------------------------------------- | 0 | 0 | SCHD | /home/pi/new_drive.hda | 1 | 0 | SCHD | /home/pi/harddisk.hda | 6 | 0 | SCCD | /home/pi/marathon.iso(WRITEPROTECT) +----+----+------+------------------------------------- pi@rascsi:~ $ Boot up your Mac that is attached to the RaSCSI. Open up Drive Setup and it should show your new drive in the list as <not initialized>. Be careful not to initialize the wrong drive!!   In the warning dialog box, click "Initialize". After it completes, you should have a drive called "Untitled" with approximately the same amount of space as the .HDA you created.    If you have issues, I'd recommend trying Lido or SCSI Probe. They can be more forgiving than Apple's Drive Setup.
