New 60 Gig WD Hard Drive being detected as a Seagate 40 Gig
First off, I just want to say that I am not a MAC tech at all. I am
doing this as a favor to a friend who's hard drive went bad. Please
excuse my ignorance.
I put a new Western Digital 60 Hard Drive in a PowerBook G4. When I
booted to the OS CD to reinstall the OS, it is detecting it as a
Seagate 40 Gig. Really Odd.
Does anyone have any ideas or clues on to why it would be doing this
and what do you recommend I do?
Thanks in Advance!

I have a pc with 2x80gb hard drives "C" and "E". "C" drive has XP home
sp2 installed. "E" drive is used for storing files. I have legal copy
of Windows 98SE that I would like to install on the "E" drive. This
setup would let install different version of MS Office, and other
software that might clash with that on "C" drive. Anybody know if this

I need to replace a hard drive in a laptop. The hard drive is mounted
in a metal caddy. There's a brown plastic insulator glued to the metal
caddy to prevent the circuit board of the original hard drive touching
the metal and cause a short circuit. The plastic is custom-cut for the
original hard drive (the circuit board doesn't cover the entire hard
drive top surface). The new hard drive has a circuit board covering
the whole hard drive top surface. So there's an area where the circuit
board touches the metal of the caddy.

It's got decent RAM, 144, so I'd like to get this old laptop to the
point where it will be a good backup machine.
I have an observation and two suggestions.
The observation arises from my playing recently with an old
machine I made up from fleamarket parts back at the start
of things -- it uses an 80286 processor. For the work that I
do -- fiction text -- that machine was good enough then and
today, it's still good enough. Faster and more complexified
OSs of all sorts, have probably cost me more time than ever
they have saved. Don't knock simple old ...Help with 1.2 Gig Hard Drive Limit!

I just picked up a lot of Seagate Baracudda 4.2 Gig Hard Drives.
I had intended to use this on my Falcons for D2D recording and etc.
Looking at the connection on these drives, they have a 68 pin Female
connector similar to the SCSI Port on the Falcon.
Of course the Falcon has a 50 pin SCSI connector.
My Question is, Are there ready to use cables I can get to directly
these drives to my Falcon?
And are there cables I can get to daisy chain at least 2 maybe 3 of
and then connect them to the Falcon.
When I bought these, I was under the impression th...Classic MPE Hardware to PC Hard Drive Question
I have a couple of old Classic MPE V/E boxes which I fire up
periodically. Everything runs at present, but the hard drive
bearings are starting to sing and warn me of their impending
failure. If you remember, the old Classic boxes use HPIB (GPIB,
IEEE-488) as the interface for hard drives.
As HPIB hard drives are getting pretty rare, I'm wondering if anyone
has been successful in putting a GPIB-to-PCI interface card in a
Windows PC, writing code for the PC to make its GPIB interface look
to the Classic 3000 like a 7937, and then successfully running the
Classic 3000 wi...Backup OS-9 hard drives on PC hardware.
When I was trying to back up my SyQuest EZ135 SCSI hard drive on a PC,
I ran in to an interesting problem. I had the PC (parallel) version of
the EZ135, and a SCSI version (hooked to my OS-9 machine). When I
inserted a non-DOS formatted platter, the PC would not recognize it.
The BIOS (or something) wanted the first sector to be PC-ish. So, my
solution was to write a quick program in C to back up the first 512
bytes (sector) of the OS-9 disk, and copy the 512-byte sector from a PC
disk to the OS-9 disk. This created an OS-9 disk (unusuable) that
would be recognized by the PC. From...Windows ME not detecting 60 gig western digital hard drive
ok......i recently aquired this 60 gig WD hard drive from my buddy. He
built a new computer and no longer needed it. I installed it to my
hewlett packard piece of crap pavilion and usually with a new hard
drive you would just plug it in and it would detect it in my computer.
It doesnt display that the drive is even there. I tried to install
it manually through the add hardware wizard but i can never find
straight up drivers for it. I have looked through the bios and the
bios detects it as slave which is correct for the setup i have
currently in place. I have tried hooking the hard drive ...Have a new 18.2 GB Sun hard drive, would like to keep the current 4.2 GB drive in there...
I have just recently received a new Sun hard drive (with a SPUD for
fitting inside my Sun Ultra 30 computer). I have a few concerns, and I do
not know enough about hardware to answer with certainty, so if anyone here
has any tips or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate your input!
It's a Fujitsu Model MAJ3182MC Ultra 160 SCSI/SCA2/LVD drive.
The drive in the Ultra 30 is a 4.2 GB (the new one is a 18.2 GB)

Here is what I'd like to do. I'd like to put this disk in, along

I bought a LOT of these and have a few that I don't need.
These are in like new condition. These are 3.5 drives and are great for
D2D recording on
the Falcon, or for use on a TT or other Atari using HD Driver.
If interested, contact me for price. I may let up to 3 of them go.
These are fairly hard to find in like new condition.

I want to run two copies of matlab at once on a dual processor non-RAID

Matlab is single threaded so will only use one processor, so I will run
