I took a quick perusal. It looks pretty complete to me. This is an often asked question and will come up over and over again as SCSI disks become rarer. --David

Someone who has some advanced knowledge should adapt this http://micha.freeshe...mdisk/index.php to an ATA/IDE Interface. Using it with something like this http://www.opend.co....ride/avride.htm might be workable.

His SCSI PCMCIA drive should work with a PCMCIA-CF adapter, but afaik no-one has attempted it yet.

I wonder how well or restricted cards fit into that since he has full sized components RIGHT in side the bay

The pictures linked to from that page imply that a sd to pcmcia adapter is usable with this, talk about a jump from modern to pretty old technology.

Ive been in close contact with the author of that device, and with his assistance and mine, i am developing a 2.5" SCSI SSD based off of that design. sorta.

do to physical constraints and size of parts, i had to use a 3.5" board for the first prototype. still waiting on the board.

I should mention that many of the SCSI HDDs of yesteryear shared the same disk mechanism with their IDE counterparts, so save your controller boards and look for matching IDE drives that might still be usable.

There were a LOT more made with the IDE controller boards than the SCSI boards . . .
. . . so there should be a LOT more of them still running! }:)

I tried that once, and it failed miserably. since the low-level-formatting didn't match, the drive wouldn't format and i couldn't figure out how to do it.

huh, used to have an external SCSI to PCMCIA here at work, for reading CF cards with a PCMCIA to CF adaptor. That was given away with a big bile of obsolete gear years ago though.
