" From: awouk at nilenet.com (Arthur Wouk)
" i purchased a 73gig sca hard drive in a sun 611 case some time ago,
" and tried to attach it to a 'new' ultra-1. it was not recognized, no
" matter what i tried. i eventually took the drive, attached a 50pin to
" sca adapter, and put it on a sparc2 which is very reliable, and besides
" has sformat working on it. it was attached at scsi station 0.
" this time the machine recognizes the drive, but the drive
" does not respond to sense signals.
" so how large a drive (and which ones) will work with sun machines?

there's no size limit i know of.  could the drive have become
defective?  cables loose [okay, not likely]?  termination?  drive
