Connect SCSI to PC

Hi,

I have little issue regarding my computer. I have bought a SCSI hard disk of 500 GB space, but my problem is that how to connect it to the motherboard. As i am beginner i don't have much knowledge about the port of the hard disk, so tell me where to connect the hard disk in my motherboard. I don't want to pay the money for computer technician as i want to gain some hardware knowledge.

A help may be appreciated with thanks

Re: Connect SCSI to PC

Hey friend,

First let me know about the port of your hard disk and the motherboard i.e. What kind of port it is IDE port or the SATA port if you have the IDE port then you need to use the hard disk with the same port. So first insure the same. For connecting the hard disk you need cable which is the same. Once you got all these then all you have to do is to look for the same port to connect to the hard disk.

A thanks may be appreciate.

Hey,

I also have a idea about the SCSI placement to motherboard. You have to look for the scsi adapter and cable which have port to fit into your drives. Set the address using the add jumper. The jumper are in number so you have to first decide which one to use by host controller card. Jumper is placed over the pins so for the five you need to connect to 4 and 1.

Thats it!!!!!!

Re: Connect SCSI to PC

Hi there,

The SCSI acronym for the Small Computer System Interface which is a standard interface for connecting different types of peripherals to a system by a card which is known as SCSI adapter or SCSI controller. It is generally connected using PCI connector. The width of the SCSI decide the number of the peripherals. If you are using 8 bit bus then there can be 8 unit can be connected.
Hope now you know how to connect the SCSI and what is SCSI.
