" I have my Alphastation 200 4/233 here. I have 320 mb ram in it and
" popped in a nice 8mb video card. I put in the 146 gb drive with the
" SCA/50 pin adaptor and I can get it to see the everything else. The
" floppy, the ethernet, scsi bus & cdrom all show up but not the drive.
" On a whim, I put in my much too small to use 1.05 gb SCA drive and
" boom! there it is in "Show Dev". Sigh, Not sure what the problem
" really is but...

have you checked/compared the drive jumpers?  there's no reason the
146 should not work.

is the drive known good?

there's the vanishingly small chance it's hvd.

another vanishingly small chance it was used in a storage array with a
peculiar sector size.
