View Full Version : UW SCSI LVD HDD

09-04-2001, 02:46 PM
I had an adaptec uw controller(2940uw) and two ibm 4.5gb uw lvd hard drives. Can I connect those two drives to my controller with just a normal scsi cable, or I need to get a lvd cable?

Hi TJ, Welcome to the Forum http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

This just happens to be a subject that I have recently studied so I should be able to give you a straight answer but unfortunately I think I need a refresher myself http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Anyway I'll point you towards the section on SCSI's (http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/if/scsi/cables.htm) from this very site The PC Guide. This section will definitely answer your questions and more.

I recommend you read the whole section as it is good reading.

Thanks for the question as it has prompted me to have a much needed look at the whole subject again.

Hope this helps http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif
