Regardless of your opinions of Artmix, below is the prototype interposer we developed to allow for the V5.5 PCB to be used as a 2.5" SCSI drive. With the male DB25 port installed as seen below, you can use the SCSI2SD both externally and internally, which has the potential to make provisioning significantly more straightforward.


Looks great @inertialcomputing. Do you know roughly when these might be available for purchase? I'm working on refurbishing a 550c.

Normally, yes, but V5.5 is a "direct attach" style device, designed such that no cable is needed.


Sure, but per the attached picture, the connector is already different than the one included on the v5.5 (not 90deg). I'm just suggesting that if a different part is being used, a DB25F is more suitable for a device targeted at PowerBooks or other mobiles since most either a) have an HDI-30, b) ports concealed behind doors or overhangs, or c) don't have external SCSI at all, making direct attachment impractical / impossible and prioritizing compatibility with a cable makes more sense.

@360alaska I'm also looking for SCSI2SD solutions for PowerBooks.  You going to make some of your adapters available for purchase?


These are now available for purchase at https://store.inertialcomputing.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=SCSI2SD-V5.5-2.5-inch
