A SCSI cable question

  1. I want to know what cables to use for SCSI U320 HDDs. Will the 68-pin U160 work with the U320? (I mean, they both have 68 pins.)

    It will work but at half the speed that the drive is capable of. It all depends on the speed of your scsi card really, if it runs at 360 then you need to put your hand in your pocket if you want full performance.

    Hope that helps. Rik.

    Just try how it works. It all depends on the cable length and quality plus the quality of your terminators. If the cable is short then it should work fine.
