Fantom Drives 73.4 GB SCSI Drive connections

I have a 73GB Fantom SCSI drive (out of warranty).  I opened the case and the small colored wires attached to the back of the connection interface came off (rather easily)  I'd like to reassemble, however, I didn't get a chance to see how those wires were arranged.
There are 3 individual wires...a BLUE, a GREEN and a YELLOW...  and a 2 wire RED/BLACK wire.  Each has a 'jumper' like connection at the end.
The interface / adapter has 8 dual pin prongs labeled, from top to bottom...
Active LED (- +) SP Sync DYLD Start RMT Start (has a jumper on it already) ID 3 ID 2 ID 1 ID 0
Thank you for any help you can provide

SOURCE: installing washing machine motor P/N 35-5022, need wiring schematic to hook up to machine internals

The black or brown connection block on the motor should be color coded to match the harness. If not you will need to remove the control panel and find the service guide sheet. This will give you the wiring diagram for the whole machine.

SOURCE: New speakers to an old (1960s) record player

It is difficult to say with 100% confidence because the pictures are out of focus, but it looks like you have just a regular turntable. The wire connections you show are the bridge between the tonearm and the external RCA style cables. The extra wire (#5) is the ground wire. You should be able to connect this to any receiver that has a phono input.

For confirmation, can you update this with the model number of the turntable? That will allow me to confirm what I have stated above.

Thanks,
Dan

SOURCE: Fantom 120 GB harddrive stopped working

I am not sure if this is a solution, but I am a Mac user and the drive stopped working on my Mac with Leopard (OS 10.5.5) but seems to work fine on Panter (0S 14.4.). I am not sure how to fix this problem, but when I went to an older computer with an older OS, the drive seems to work just fine lik it did... I can't remember if I updated my Firewire or not.

I could not set the jumper ID as 3 in Seagate 73 GB model of Hard drive.It has 12 pins at the back of Hard drive.


You need a jumper on ID pin sets 1 and 2 (as if you were setting it for both ID 1 and ID 2)
These pin sets work like binary, so set 1 for ID1, set 2 for ID 2, and sets 1 & 2 for ID 3. In this mannar, with just the 4 sets of pins, you can have IDs from 0 to 15 (no jumpers to all 4 jumpered..1+2+4+8=15)

* * * *
* * * *
1234 set number
1248 binary ID (additive)

I have IBM eServer with ServeRaid-7K on board controller and have 3 SCSI 73GB hard drives configured in RAID-5 array. Hard Drives are running critically low on space and I bought 3 300GB scsi Ultra320 hard...


First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

If it still has a valid warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

Otherwise, open the enclosure, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the adapter was the problem.

I have a flashing light on my Fantom hard drive light. Did it crash?


The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Hard drive will not boot up and the computer doesn't recoginize it. all I have is the blue light on.


Try connecting it to a different computer, to see if it gets recognized.

Is it still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty.

Otherwise, disassemble the case, remove the "internal" hard-drive, and connect that drive as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case is the problem, while the data on the disk-drive could be OK.

How can i onnect my ext. hard drive with a scsi connector to my computer?


I'm not sure you can get a USB SCSI hard drive adapter case.
I've got an Adaptec SCSI to USB adapter cable and found ot very useful.
It is not as handy as a USB hard drive case bur it works.

USB Hard Drive wont open


Make sure you have installed the software drivers first before connecting the USB hard drive. USB is Plug and Play, and when you connect hardware that requires drivers to be installed first, it will not function correctly or not work at all sometimes..

Fantom 120 GB harddrive stopped working


My problem and my solution
-Fantom Drives 200GB was working correct on desktop which runs Windows XP
-Connected it to a laptop which runs Vista and the drive became undecteable by both platforms. It showed up on Vista's device manager for a hot second and then vanished all together.
-Changed the USB cable and still no go
-Finally, I made the decision to void the warranty by opening it and connecting it directly to my CPU and there it all was. 170GB worth of data. Same as what scott201201 is suggesting above.
-Moral of this story...."Backup your "backup".

Advise. Please make sure to read the warranty on your product you may be able to send it back to the company if it is under waranty. I read on another blog that the miniboard in the case where the usb connects to the device was faulty and needed repair. I know this is the same with mine because it works perfection when connected directly to the desktop.

Good luck techies
