I have a DEC 3000/500S, which uses 50-pin narrow internal cabling, and a
68-pin wide drive I want to use in it. Does anyone know where I can buy
a *WORKING* adapter (preferably low-profile) that will let me connect
the wide drive to the internal 50-pin SCSI bus? I stress "working"
because I mail-ordered one before, and it wouldn't work. I'm guessing
it was wired up incorrectly, as mentioned in the SCSI FAQ.
Sources willing to accept university purchase orders are a definite
plus. Low-cost is also a bonus. BTW, do I have to get an adapter with
high-byte termination, or is that unnecessary?
Thanks in advance for any help keeping this ol' DEC alive!
