Question

I just got given a 68 pin 9.1GB Quantum drive. Will an adaptor like the one in the link below enable me to use this as my primary drive in my Indy?

Response

Yes. Be sure to get a good adapter which terminated the upper 8bit which are unused. Same way like 68pin<->50pin cables. Also SCA->50pin Adapters works fine in indy/i2.

Please be aware that the clearances inside an Indy are very tight, so the shape of the adapter is rather critical. Some adapters will extend beyond the edge of the drive, and these can't be used in an Indy. Other adapters might be too long, and will interfere with the CPU module.

You pretty much just have to buy it and try it though.
