Question about Dell OptiPlex GX150 PC Desktop

Connecting Ricoh Media Master SCSI external cdrw

I was given the above. I have an adapter cord to connect it via the printer. I also have a connector cord to attach it usb. I cannot figure out how to get the bios to recognize it so that the software can see it.

It is model MP7060SE. I have contacted Ricoh, and searched other places but still not success. My system is a Dell SFF GX150.

Now just to make it interesting I purchased a SCSI card, but the connector is the small one and the connector on the cdrw is like a printer connector (a wide one-(50) I do not know if there is an adaptor for the cords. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unless i am wrong you cannot use a scsi connector
on a cdrw . there may be an adapter for it though SCSI are used primarily for just HD,s
as to your first question you may need a BIOS upgrade.

How can I connect Tandberg SLR60 device to a PC with windows XP? Device is installed but it is not listed in removable media section. There are no problems reported in device manager etc.


The SLR60 is a SCSI device. First you need to acquire a SCSI adapter, such as an Adaptec 29160 or 39160 PCI SCSI adapter. Both the adapter and the SLR60 have 68-pin connections, so you will need a cable similar to this one: http://www.cablestogo.com/product/07858/3ft-scsi-3-ultra2-lvd-se-md68-m-m-cable-thumbscrew. Once you have all of this, connect the tape device via cable to the adapter. You will need a 3rd-party backup program, such as Seagate Backup Exec or NovaBackup.

I need a cord for the mad dog multi media device so that possibly I can have this external hard drive accessed.


What device do you need a cord for? The Mad Dog Dominator given above is an internal IDE CD/DVD drive. Thus it can be connected to a 4 pin peripheral molex connector to the power supply and a 40 pin IDE ribbon cable. Some USB/SATA/IDE devices will be able to connect to the drive for external use (since it is a full size 5 1/4" drive). Similarly, you can find some USB external device enclosures that will work with the IDE connect.

There are IDE to SATA converters that you can add to connect the drive to a computer with no IDE port on the motherboard. (There are also power adapters to convert a SATA power connector to the 4 pin in the rare case that you do not have a free 4 pin connector. However, a 4-pin y-connector is usually a better choice).

All of the above items are available from most computer supply shops.

I wish that I could be of more help.

(external hard drives currently can have one or more of the following connectors: USB 2.0, e-SATA, Firewire, ethernet, or USB 3.0. The USB 2.0 is the most common. A standard USB cable (A/B) is the usual one for a USB 2.0. These are also available at most computer shops. Look at the device and the size of the opening to determine the cable end needed. Standard B is a square end with beveled corners. Usually a text or icon on the device will indicate the port type.)

I want to retrieve data from an old 50-pin hd from my old mac. Anybody got a solution?


There are two ways of retrieving data from a SCSI hard drive.
1. Connect the SCSI hard drive to a different SCSI connector on the same data cable, make sure this hard drive has a different SCSI ID from the first hard drive or other SCSI devices in your system. When you boot up your MAC you should see the second SCSI hard drive, You can then copy off your data or remove the redundant files and keep the old hard drive in your system as a 2nd hard drive.
2. Connect the old SCSI hard drive to a SCSI USB hard drive adapter. Then connect it to the USB port on the MAC and you should see this as an external hard drive.

How to attach outdated hardware cable to computer w/usb ports?


Hi!

I'm not really sure what you're asking. If your problem is that your scanner has an "outdated" connector and you want to try to connect it to your PC via USB ports, the only sensible answer, given the prices of scanners, is to buy a new scanner. Your old scanner, if it is not USB, is probably a SCSI connector device. Do a Google search exactly like this "USB to SCSI adapter cable" and you'll see a lot of results. Cables generally seem to range from $20 to $100. Even if you get the scanner connected, there is a very high probability that there will not be any drivers available that will work with the new computer and cable. All-in-all, a new scanner, even a cheap one, is the way to go IMO, and will give you better scans to boot.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!
