Anyone test SCSI->SATA adapters? SD Card readers?

Unread postby vegac » Fri Dec 05, 2014 12:01 pm

So I know there are a number of SCSI->IDE adapters that have been tested...has anyone tried SCSI->SATA?
Unfortunately the main SCSI->SATA I see are 68pin, and if I recall correctly my Octane takes 80pin SCA drives...

I was hoping to pick up an 80-pin to 68-pin adapter, followed by the 68-pin to SATA, and throw a modern drive into my Octane.

Either that, or grabbing the PC-Card that apparently works on the Octane and throwing my PCMCIA SD card reader into and seeing if I can use that...

Has anyone had any luck with either of these?
Just coming back and trying to get caught up on the latest :)

Okay, solved this one. All you need to do now is get out the checkbook :

Hi,
I'm not sure about Octane, but I know that the Addonics AESNMSC works with O2.

The Acard ARS-2160 appears to work with Origin 200

Hope that helps.
