Well, since I have no knowledge of basically anything I was simply thinking like this: pull a scsi 50pins ribbon with multiple connections out of my PC and just stick it in the machine, connect the two disks and have fun where possible, but in essence I have no idea if this is possible or if I could actually ruin something by simply trying.
And yes, I played around with the little green box with the three switches on controller board and saw the unit id change, so basically my mind started wandering off (at which point I always get affraid it doesn't want to return).
On the other hand, since I only use this machine to run Cubase and store some arrangments, I think 1gb will last me about ehm, 20 years
and off course I need the ribbon in my PC to read out my Akai formatted Jaz disks..
So I didn't get passed the point of wondering and probably never will.. I'm also thinking it might become realy noisy..
BTW. Do you still have this mice problem? If so, I'm interested in helping you get rid of it.
PS. the only information I couldn't really find on here was about 'parity'. Now I have a slight idea of what it is, but the links I found referred to an old piece of a forum that didn't seem to exist anymore, so that jumper was trail and error.
