Hello Rivcr, 1. Check for a terminator on the back of the scsi unit. 2. Make sure you have power. 3. make sure power switch is on. 4. Select a different scsi id number, not 0 or 1 or 7. Does this help?

Ive just bought an old sony dat drive SDT-5000 and want to use the external housing frome one I already have. Does anyone know how to set the jumpers? I can supply an image of this if it helps

supply an image (and would be great if you could supply image from old broken one and new one)

I'm a bit confused though: if you have an internal working sdt-5000 that you want to put into an external broken sdt-5000, it should be as simple as getting the enclosure open, then swapping the internal drives; i.e. external enclosures usually still use the same spec internal drive so it would just be an ide or scsi connector cable.

Can i get a SCSI Cable for Sun StorEdge DAT 72

You shouldn't have too much trouble, they are a bit old hat but you should be able to get one from most PC shops/repair shops, some electrical retailers but I'd try ebay for the cheapest option.

Here's a male to male version on ebay:-

Just ensure what terminals you need at each end of the cable, there are various choices.
