SCSI to USB hard drive adapter

Posted 01 July 2014 - 04:58 AM

Hello
I have been looking around for a SCSI to USB adapter for testing hard drives. I haven't found anything yet. Is there such a thing? Can such a thing be made?

yes, yes, raid configurations would be lost but if your just testing single drives then that's ok.

thanks

A SCSI hard drive? Are you sure you are not looking for an IDE to USB? Either way - there seem to be plenty of cable adapters on amazon and google shopping.

I already have :
* IDE to USB
* ATA to USB
* SATA to USB

I can use a SCSI to USB

Can you post some links to the ones you found? or where they SATA to USB converters?
thanks

Hmm.. maybe I spoke too soon. I figured the scsi to usb cables were universal, but most where stamped with "not for hard drive".

have you tried jumping through the adapter card hoop yet?

I would be surprised that SCSI had a usb adapter, as the addressing is unique compared to IDE or SATA. The addressing is done by the backplane I/O board, which is different than IDE or SATA. Plus, depending on the pin type/architecture, you need a terminator. I'm not sure how you're going to pull that off on an adapter.

What are you trying to do? If you're trying to use that 12GB D1000 unit I gave you, I would recommend hooking it to an older pc & using it as a (very slow) NAS.

Also, what pin is the SCSI drive? 68, 80? The drives from the D1000 unit I gave you are 80.

Na, I was looking for something for testing ALL SCSI drives of various pin configurations. But it looks like I would have to build a dedicated PC with 3 or 4 cards just for testing SCSI's.

:(

No USB for SCSI

You may be able to use an adapter cable instead of multiple cards in the PC.
