Hello Friends,

I just wonder if a 50 pin SCSI iomega Jaz drive could be used under IRIX.
Do you know if any IRIX driver exists for this drive?

I just happened to get one, and both the SCSI connection type and the form factor
tempt me to put it into an Indy. It would fit perfectly into the position of the floptical drive.

Thanks,

Zsolt

As long as the SCSI setup is correct, the Iomega Jaz won't need a driver for IRIX 6.5. - Mediad should auto-mount the drive and place a "Jaz" icon on your Desktop.

http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... 1/mediad.z
Code:
 mediad monitors these device types:

       CDROM    CD-ROM

       dat      DAT tape

       floppy   Insite floptical disk, Teac SCSI floppy disk

       jaz      Iomega Jaz disk  <--------------------------------------------------

       LS-120   LS-120 I-O Data 120MB floppy-compatible disk

       optical  Sony SMO-521 and Pinnacle Sierra magneto-optical disks

       syquest  SyQuest EZ135, 88, 105, 200, and 270 Mb disks
       tape     QIC 24, 150, 1000, and 1350 tapes, IBM 3480 tape, Exabyte 8 mm
                tape, and DLT tape

       zip      Iomega Zip disk 

     Note that CDROM, dat, floppy, LS-120 and tape are sold and supported by
     SGI.  The rest (jaz, optical, syquest, zip) are not sold or supported by
     SGI.
