It doesn't have any cables or manuals with it. That's all the other info I have. Actually I haven't used it since I bought it.

Yes.

Is it one of those that is supposed to work in a 32-bit slot as well?

Back to you Tom...
October 15, 2001 5:27:06 PM

Sorry forgot to mention that. Yes it works in a 32bit or 64 bit slot.

Does it include cables?

No cables, only the card, static bag, and a bunch of packing peanuts and maybe a box.

October 15, 2001 7:15:29 PM

How about Adaptec cards, I'm seeing some good prices on 64-bit cards on E-bay, will those work on a 32-bit slot?

Back to you Tom...
October 15, 2001 7:18:58 PM

I'm not sure on those. When you put a 64bit card in a 32 bit slot "I believe"(note, not sure) that some of the features are disabled but it should still function somewhat properly, however this largely depends on if the manufacturer intended it to do this. So what I would do is find the adaptec cards on ebay and go to adaptecs site and see their FAQ or see the troubleshooting page and try and find out if they will work or not before you buy them.

Most 64Bit cards will work in 32Bit slots but not in the max speed. for example this card have two channels each one support 80MB/Sec. That is 160MB/Sec Normaly 32Bit slot will be able to move all that data but it will use all the PCI data bus. I use a Dual channel U160 card and No 32Bit slot will be able to move 320MB/Sec. I can still use the card in a 32Bit system but I will not get the max from it.

Bump.

By the way if you don't want to buy it does anyone have any drives for it that they'll sell me cheap?
