Actually the problem is that it uses a differential scsi rather than straight scsi. I think differential uses a higher voltage to allow longer cable runs (I just read a reference to this.) Use a differential-to-scsi converter and you can attach it to other things. It's actually an EXABYTE drive, (or was it TANDBERG? I think EXABYTE) ----- Original Message ----- From: "Andy Nolen-Parkhouse" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Wednesday, December 12, 2001 7:42 AM Subject: RE: 7208 > I have seen IBM SCSI tape drives shared between two AS/400's using a > SCSI switch from Black Box.
