Need to adapt SCSI Drvs/cards from 68 to 78 pin

August 17, 2013 at 09:25:11
Specs: Windows XP, 2Gb
need to adapt old 78 pin SCSI hard drive to 68 pin controller. I have two (1997 & 1996) drives that
have never been booted, and 2 SCSI PCI controller cards that are also un-used. The controllers
have 68 pin and 50 pin connect points and I only have cables for those same types. One drive is an IBM of
unknown size & pedigree that says "DCHS" on the only label that's large enough to read. The other
drive is a Seagate "ST31055WC". The drive interfaces have 39 pins above a narrow plastic "island",
and a 2nd 39 pin row below. The connectors are about 2 inches wide. Where can one find an adapter ?

Thanks, Kim

Are you sure you have counted correctly? I've not heard of 78-pin connectors, but some SCSI hard disks had 80-pin connectors. Converters can be purchased on Amazon:
