HP CD Writer 9600 (SCSI) Problem

Unread postby Raion-Fox » Thu May 04, 2017 7:44 pm

So I bought this drive and it refuses to read my IRIX disks. I set the ID to 3, used an HD50 to HD68 cable (known working) to hook it to my Octane, and tried boot -f dksc(1,3,8)sash64 It outputs this error string in the images I've posted below.

Tried on my O2 as well without success - same error message just not repeated. Should I assume the drive is broken?

It appears the drive can't use a 512 byte sector setting. I don't think MMC3 requires it.

Probably no. You'd better (my advice) buy a Plextor CDRW or Yamaha.
They are cheap ( < 50 USD ), and they're known to work on SGI.

Unfortunately I don't have for sale, sorry =(

So I pulled my drive out of the case and took the toshiba from my O2 out and put it in the thing and it works,so at least I know that the drive is the problem. I'm gonna find another drive from HP that can fit this.

Did you have any luck finding another drive from HP that fits this case? I also have the same model.

I still have the adapter but nothing fits in the case. I ended up buying another drive, this one is from HP and supports our sector size
