Bought a bunch of Indys off eBay in 2006 and only last month got around to trying out one of the two I had left. Picked up a few system upgrades and also the SCSI2SD as I'm out of good disks.

Nice find. Only getting into them now?

Have any ideas of how you'll use the one you posted the hinv for?

What a pretty stack of Indy. Which SCSI2SD did you get? Have you given it a try? I have a few systems I want to use them in, I picked up a v6 around Christmas and haven't done anything with it yet, the plan is for it to be in an Indigo.

Yeah I'm more of a vintage Mac guy and I originally bought these just so I could actually own an SGI machine. After getting IRIX installed and playing around I decided to break the bank a little more and ordered a Sony PSU and R5000 upgrade, arriving monday probably. Might poke around with graphics apps or whatever I come across.

I'm running the SCSI2SD v5 mainly due to cost as I had to buy 3 of them (2 for my vintage Mac purposes). I've got one already in my main Indy and seems to work no problem. Just using a 16GB class 10 card which seems to be enough for me, at least for now.

How much did you pay for the SCSI2SD and the cards, If I may ask? I was contemplating a purchase until I started to scour the 2nd hand market for a few months. I managed to score several drives in beautiful condition for next to nothing. Maybe I was just lucky, but afterwards the SCSI2SD seemed like a very expensive purchase.

The SCSI2SD v5 was $60 USD from an online store Inertia Computing. The class 10 SD card I just picked up from a local shop for probably $15. The v6 version of SCSI2SD I think is about $100 and that was more than I could reasonably spend.
