The goal is to connect a hard drive to the 6100, as I got it without one.
I haven't been able to find any 50 pin drives, but I have a few 68 pin SCSI drives that I can play with.
Due to the insane prices on eBay and elsewhere for a M-M 50 to 68 pin adapter, upwards of $40 including shipping, I decided to take the fun route and make one.
The plan is to crimp on a 68 pin male connector onto a 50 pin ribbon, both of which I already have.
To ensure I won't mess up the Mac, I have a PCI card that I can plug into a PC and try out the setup.
I know it's a crazy plan, but it should be fun. And it's basically risk free (for the Mac).
Now here's the reason for my post.
I would like to know if the SCSI bus on the 6100 is single-ended or differential.
It appears that the pinout is slightly different in the two cases, so I need to select the right one.
Since I only have 68 pin drives, the right pinout is even more important, as they can support SCSI-II and III.
I could also use advice on whether a direct/passive non-terminated 50 to 68 pin connection should work.
Thank you very much for any suggestions.
