You could keep looking, ICD SCSI adapters pop up from time to time there. However, as Kubik already mentioned, it's probably not worth the price, unless you insist on getting a SCSI harddrive running.Bas wrote:Besides this I have an Megafile 60 wich I can't seem to get running.
Then maybe you should concentrate your energy on fixing that, if possible. I see from your other posting on this that you didn't get very far in looking for the error. For example: Can you hear the drive even spin up? Did you check to which ACSI ID the Megafile is set? Did you check that the power supply operates properly? Did you use any ACSI bus scanning software -- such as IDCHECK.PRG or HOST.TOS from http://www.icd.com/atari/adscsi.zip? (Although they come bundled with ICD software, these two programs will run even if you don't have an ICD host adapter.)Is there a way to use an simple SD type media and connect this on the Megafile (Without al soldering and rebuilding)
No, there is no reasonable way of connecting an SD card to the internals of a Megafile harddrive. Get a CosmosEx or Ultrasatan if you want to use SD cards without any soldering/modification of your Atari.

Well, with the information you gave it's rather hard to diagnose from far away.Bas wrote: As far as hearing it spinning: can't be to sure because the fan is noisy.
The disk drive in my SH204 easily drowns out the fan. Plus it makes this characteristic noise first spinning up and then doing a self test. The sound of it spinning down is also very noticeable. When looking at (or rather listening to) this video, it seems that a Megafile 60 sounds similar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUsVigHLsIQ

I am making a big assumption that the Megafile can be resurrected there. BTW, I remember having to park my SCSI drive [generic make] when I was using it with my STFM a fair few years back, was that required on the Megafile as well? (I ask, because I'm seeing no-one mentioning it, and it would be a big gotcha for people new to this.)
