|Well, the drive is mounted in an enclosure. |
But, the bare drive itself has a ribbon cable connected to it....the other end of the ribbon cable connects to some type of circuity within the enclosure.
The external connectors (those old wide SCSI things that look kinda like a parallel printer connector) connect to this circuitry through the enclosure wall.
In other words...within the case, there is some circuitry (other than just the power unit...that sits between the the external connectors and the drive itself.
To look at the bare drive...it looks JUST LIKE an IDE ATA hard drive.....Except, it has a 2 rows of 25 pins (not 19 or 20).
The drive model: DPES-31080 (IBM) and P/N: 85g3623
Hey, and the other folks...thanks for those links.
Google is pretty cool.....however, I did try multiple searches for the needed adapter before posting here...nothing came up (that I could find).
Those results produced by the provided links include adapters which do not connect to this BARE drive (as described).
It was nice for you to provide them, nonetheless.
