PCI 2.3 or PCI-Express suitable LVD SCSI Controller Tags: SCSI PCI Controller PCI Express Storage Last response: March 6, 2010 12:39 PM in Storage Share MauriceS March 6, 2010 4:15:17 AM Hello, I have an LTO1 tape drive, which has a LVD SCSI interface. My problem is to find a SCSI controller which works in a PCI 2.3 slot (which provides ONLY 3.3 V, not 5V!) without breaking the bank. This is a dual-core machine. I do have one PCI 2.3 slot available, and one PCI Express slot. I tried an Adaptec 29160 card, and while it physically fits, the machine doesn't even post when it is plugged in... Any recommendations?

I would drop the whole tape plan and focus on HDD instead; much cheaper, faster, better. m 0 l MauriceS March 6, 2010 12:39:20 PM While LTO1 is older, obscurity is not as bad.... LTO1 tapes can be read by LTO2 and LTO3 drives, no problem :-) That's the whole premise of LTO... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
