SCSI Hard Disc

My Seagate SCSI HD hasn't run up and the tally light is pulsing.
Disappeared off setup, too. Is it toast - or is their anything I can try?
Luckily I only use it for temporary audio files so nothing important on it.
I ran a test on it just the other day and it reported ok. Perhaps
coincidence?

If that fails remove from computer, turn upside down and give it a sharp

Not a 4.2 GB Seagate ST34520N by any chance?

I'll give that a try.

Not sure since it's disappeared off everything. Can't find any paperwork,
either. Know it cost a fortune when bought. ;-)

There should be identification printed on the drive.

Do you have a second identical drive? Just a couple of weeks ago I 
recovered the contents of a Seagate SCSI disc by replacing the circuit 
board with one from an identical drive.

I've looked in the 2004/2005 catalogue (page 674 on), been to a shop and
asked about the product Electrolube, and they had no idea what I was
talking about. (Even Stabilant 22)
Offered me something by Servisol, and something of their own, but nothing
called Electrolube containing Stabilant 22.

Perhaps some kind person could have a butchers at the Maplin catalogue and
point me at the product.

Typing 'Electrolube' into the Maplin website search box returns zero
results.

'Servisol' however returns a page of results.

Typing 'Electrolube' into the Google search does return quite a few hits
and may give you a supplier.

Try Farnell - they sell on-line.

It looks as though the name Electrolube is no longer in use.  My can, which
must be a few years old since it has a "Use by 04/2002" sticker on it, says
Electrolube in small print but has the letters SGB in large print.  My
current  CPC catalogue still illustrates SGB contact grease, but the name
Electrolube is not in the entry - but is visible with a magnifying glass.

part no SA00648 for a syringe or SASGB200D for the aerosol.

Can't see it in the Maplin catalogue, but e.g. MainlyTrains
(www.mainlytrains.com) has 'PECO Electrolube' at 3.40 for a pen
dispenser type tube. Try a model rail shop if you have one local.

www.electrolube.co.uk shows they are part of H K Wentworth Limited.

Copyright notice 2004, so it is current.

Click on Distributors on the LHS and you can get a text version of their
distributor list - which includes RS, CPC, Farnell, but not Maplin.

Thank you Ray,
Unfortunately Farnell, RS etc.,  have quite large minimum orders values,
and no shop chain.

I've been to www.electrolube.co.uk, and done the Google bit in the past,
but still without.

Try CPC who are the retail division of Farnell: http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/home/homepage.jsp
A search on 'contact lubricant' gives 2 results - both Elecrolube :-)

CPC don't have a minimum order as such -  but you only get free carriage if
you spend 30 Quid.  Orders up to 14.99 have to pay 4.99  P&P.

My last order from RS was under 10 quid in value - yes, again I had to pay
for P&P.

Looks like you should get some whilst they still have 'some in stock',
judging by comments in this thread.

Not sure that Electrolube contains Stabilant 22, they were quite
different products from different sources.

It looks like I should check out the links on that page of mine and
update, using Ray Dawsons pointer. Thanks Ray.

Good prompt Chris, it set me thinking.

them and they keep Electrolube pens in stock.

That is why I mention such sources on my web site as that is where I
purchased my first Elecrolube pen, although it had a PECO number then.

In the course of helping a disabled friend to clear out a lot of old Acorn kit I have acquired one of the original 210Mb hard discs that were fitted to some Risc PCs. It is now formatted F+ (long file names) and contains the rudiments of a RISC OS 4.02 installation. I could re-format it to F (as original) which would leave it empty.

I have been successfully using a DOS-formatted 2GB HDD connected via a USB external caddy to back up my Iyonix for some time. Following comments in the recent "USB Hard Discs..." thread, I thought it might be a good idea to format a larger disc using !SCSIForm and use that instead. The disc formatted fine and files copied readily. However, what seems to happen is that, with some folders, the system locks up before the entire contents are copied. For example, lockup occurs with the !Boot folder when approx. 101 of the 103MB have been copied. Subsequent attempts to add even one file t...

Scsi disc problems
I have bought myself a Sun Ultra-2, and I have bought a 9.1GB SCSI disc (because the 4.5 GB discs that came with it are not big enough). The new disc is a Compaq Disc, Part No. 336366-001 (though it reports itself as of type HD0093172C, which the compaq website - well, the HP website now - suggests should have the Part No. 336381-001). However, the Compaq/HP website gives no information about the specification of that disc. Actually, from its appearance, I would say it is actually a re-badged Seagate drive, but I have not been able to identify the corresponding Seagate Part No. (which is a p...

My hard disc locked
I've got two hard discs, one is for my system and one is for the data.( both of them are in NTFS format) few days ago, my system went down and I wanted to install format and install windows98 to drive C.(I used XP before) Unluckily, I can't install Windows 98 into Drive C(looks like it's not competitible w/ NTFS) So I installed XP afterwerds. After that, My Drive D turned to RAW format, I can't open drive D's data. The windows said that I haven't format the D drive ant when I use the fdisk, it can't identify my drive D's format. There are twenty-something giabyt...

Hard disc scratch
My teenage son has a habit of restarting his laptop when the system (frequently) hangs by removing the battery. Now there appears to be a problem on the hard disc. Durning the execution of Scandisk, the scan reaches around 86% and then stops. It just stays there until the system is rebooted. We can get the machine to operate by rebooting and bypassing scandisk. But certain operations, e.g. trying to delete a particular file, cause the system to hang. I guess the cause is that there is some kind of scratch on the disc when he removed the battery once too often. But I am surprised that Scandisk can't overcome this. Anyone know of any utility that can perhaps put the bad sectors into an "envelope" so that they are simply ignored by the system ?

Hard Disc on Iyonix
The hard disc on my Iyonix has started to produce 'Disc error 13 at ...' messages. I need to purchase a replacement drive of the same or similar type so that I can have them both connected at the same time to copy stuff from the original to the new drive. What is it that I should purchase please? DIscKnight gives the map a clean bill so I'll do nothing to the existing HDD until I've copied it all off (and made a backup first).

SCSI Hard drive?
I plan to install another Hard Drive in my Compaq Presario P4 desktop to have Linux Mandrake 10.0 on it (the original disk, an IDE one, has Win$_XP). I was thinking in buying a SCSI one (with its adaptor, of course) because of the best performance compared to IDE ones but I wonder if I should, given that: I have no experience/knowledge at all with SCSI. I have currently no time to spend fighting against problems. So, I need a drive that may be installed easily, like an IDE does. Should I try SCSI or stick to IDE? or, in other words, Am I likely to find problems with an SCSI drive and adapter? Does anyone know of a SCSI drive that can be installed like that (snap)? Please, any clue.

1GB SCSI HARD
I have a 56slc 8556-059 IBM computer.It came with a 160MB harddrive. I bought a 1GB scsi ibm ps2 harddrive and istalled it. I run the diagnostic disk to test the harddrive and it tells me that the hardrive needs service or needs to be replaced. I tried to format the harddrive and it tells me that harddrive failed. Does anyone know if my computer can take the 1GB hardrive? Randall Rickerson wrote: > I have a 56slc 8556-059 IBM computer.It came with a 160MB harddrive.

I tried to format the harddrive and it tells me > that harddrive failed. Does anyone know if my computer can take the 1GB > hardrive? According to announcement letter 195-232, the 8556 can use a 1.08GB SCSI hard drive, *but* note 12 indicates that the drive must be a secondary drive, it can't be used as the primary drive. Announcement letter 195-233 for the 540MB SCSI drive does not have the secondary limitation, so this implies to me that the 8556 can handle an IML drive up to but not exceeding 1023MB. If your 160MB drive is still operational, keep it as SCSI ID 6, then set the 1GB (which I'm assuming is 1024MB or larger) drive as SCSI ID 5, and see if you can format and use the 1GB drive. If you can't, try to format the 1GB drive in another PC using the Adaptec ...

Hard disc recovery
I had a somewhat strange experience today with a hard drive. Some months ago I decided to upgrade the hard drive on my PC from 100GB to 160GB. The drives were formatted to NTFS. I used the now spare 100GB drive in my Risc PC, initialising it with my Unipod, where it has been used since February this year. As the 100GB was a bit over the top and the PC again needed more space, I reverted the Risc PC to its original 10GB drive and put the 100GB drive - still with all the Risc PC stuff on it - back into the PC, as a slave to the other drive. When I turned the PC on, it went into a half hour ...

Hardware hard in Linux?
OK, here's the scenario. Dual boot box consisting of a P4P-800-E DLX, Nvidia video card, printer, scanner, bells, whistles, and it's something I'm proud of. The Linux side is running Slack 10.2 with a custom 2.6.16 kernel and gware Gnome for the desktop. Mrs. Phist decided to buy me a wireless keyboard and mouse since my old ones are almost five years old and I've beaten them all to hell. She's not the most tech savvy person in the world and just went to Best Buy and got a Microsoft keyboard/mouse combo for about $40 CAN. Not a bad deal, but I'm going from PS2 wired k...

SCSI Hard Drives
I'm getting ready to upgrade some SCSI hard drives on my Falcons. I need 3.5 size and will be using them for D2D recording and for help in Audio and Data CD creation. Before I go out and spend money on a model I'm not sure about, I was wondering if Falcon users and people in the know could recommend some good Brands/models and type of SCSI would be best. Like SCSI II,SCSI III, or just plain SCSI. HD Driver and Cecile will be the Hard Drive System software mostly likely used. I have 3 Falcons to upgrade drives on. I also need a source for good SCSI cables to connect from the Falcon to a Centronics type connection. I would rather have cables of around 3-4 feet instead of 6+ foot in length. I plan on using partitions close to a Gig each. So I guess I need each drive to be around 10-15 Gigs. It's been awhile since I've upgraded my drives. My last one was a Toshiba 2.5IDE of around 6-8gigs on my CT2B. The SCSI drives will be used on a fairly stock Falcon and 2 that are fairly modified with Bus upgrades and such. I was wondering if there is any way to use the extra space on a very large SCSI drive of say 100 Gigs with the limits that TOS 4.04 has on a partition. IIRC, About a Gig a partition is a far as ya can go with TOS 4.04. Does anyone know if the CT2B Falcon upgrade using Cecile from the Flash allows larger than 1 gig partitions on IDE and or SCSI drives or are we stuck with the 1gig limit. Any help is ...

Hard Disc linking
Hi, I have just installed a second hard disc (with no links, = slave) and all works perfectly. I had to work out whether the boot disc was configured as a Master or as Drive select so I checked the documentation that came with the disc many years ago. I was surprised as to how the boot disc is configured. All works well was I didn't alter anything but I am left curious. The boot disc is a Maxtor 5T030H3 and is linked as follows; Link between Pins 1 and 6 Link between Pins 2 and 3 X = Pin O = No Pin 1 2 3 4 5 X X X O X X X X X X 6 7 ...

Replacement Hard Disc
I have a RISC PC 600 with RISC OS 3.6. The current hard disc appears to have failed with hard errors. I have been unable to find out what the maximum hard disc size that I can fit is - I've been unable to run HForm (I've tried several versions) with a 40Gb HD. So, some questions: What is the maximum size HD that I can add with the current OS and what version of HForm would I use? Can I just add some spare 3.7 ROMs I have and would it make any difference? Where can I get a very small HD if the answer to the above is less than about 18Gb (the smallest I can make available)? What upg...

Some Acorn user discs
Hello, I have a stack of Acorn User discs sitting in my room (about 75) which need shifting. Out of curiosity, are they worth anything to anyone out there?

A3010 Hard disc
Hi. Know this is a tall order but does anyone have an IDE interface for the A3010 which I could use to connect a hard disc to the machine? Also, I need a user port on the expansion card. I dont need a hard disc, I have two in an A7000 and I could take one for this. Know it wont fit, but neatness doesnt really matter. I just need the inteface. Alternatively does anyone have an expansion card of any sort whatsoever for an A7000 with a user port on it? I really dont care what it is so long as theres a user port (for an external control box I want to get working for a model railway). If anyone ...

scsi Hard drives
Hi, I've been looking about at various scsi hard drives and controllers with the intent of buying one for my work desktop, the task is going to require alot of repeated disk access so the quicker the better so i've assumed that a 15,000rpm Ultra320 type is my best bet. However i have no idea about the scsi controllers and compatibility issues involved. The desktop is a Dell Optiplex GX620, i have had my IT guys on to Dell to see if they could come up with something but they do not support scsi drives on these computers. Does anyone have any suggestions as to the make/type ...

I havnt yet attached my driver with the Pentium BSP, but I call the PCI and SCSI initilization functions from the shell. 2. I am not using the auto config, I am doing manual configuration of the SCSI device, which is SCSI Ultra 160 Hard Drive, by calling the the following routine, scsiPhysDevCreate(pscsiC...
