Quote from: "barcher174"With the most recent firmware update the scsi2sd adapter now works perfectly in a cube. No error messages during startup. I have tested with Nextstep 3.3 and 1.0 with no issues.

There is also a Linux port of the tool if that is a concern.the main problem would be that i haven't any "PC" with SCSI anymore, so maybe i had to dig out an old Macintosh. But i have seen that the Adapter isn't available anymore.(Products marked with *** are not available in the desired quantity or not in stock!)
Quote from: "pitz"The SCSI2SD is configured through a regular USB cable with a PC. Aside from NeXT machines, I also use them with other retro PCs and it's been a great replacement for SCSI drives.
Quote from: "igor_av"Hi. I just received a scsi2sd board with the 4.00 firmware. I installed a generic 8 gb microsd card. When connected to my nextstation, I get a "Can't determine drive capacity" error during boot. Afterwards, I'm invited to initialize the disk, but capacity is said to be 0 Kb.Should I edit disktab? Is there any other solution?Thanks.
QuoteIf you want disks larger than 2GB you will need to edit the disktab. Otherwise create 4 separate 2GB disks. If you still have problems try changing the drive manufacturer and model to be a contemporary drive type.

If you still have problems try changing the drive manufacturer and model to be a contemporary drive type.Thanks for your suggestions. I made 1GB and 2GB virtual disks, none works. I also changed the manufacturer and model to fit with the internal drive. I get the same complaints : "ERROR : Can't read device capacityDISK UNFORMATTED"In another post, I think someone mentioned the --apple flag. It is not an option with the new GUI configuration tool.I tried mounting the scsi2sd in an old G3 Powermac running Mac OS 9.2. The drive appears has unsupported in Drive Setup.Now, I'm trying to format the 1GB virtual drive using FWB Hard Disk Toolkit. The operation has been running for 30 minutes so far. The estimated completion time was 1 minute.Finally, I don't think I can install a 3.x firmware on the new board.
