SCSI2SD owners how do you make it work?
Old 3 weeks ago

Is anyone using the scsi2sd as an external drive for a Yamaha SU700? I just had an AIEB1 card installed on the sampler and maxed out the ram to 64mb. If I’m gonna go with v5.1, is just a matter of getting a good quality scsi cable for connecting the drive and then powering it with a usb? The formatting is for another day, I’m just looking for the hardware config for now. Cheers!

When I switched to v6 configured a 64GB SD as a single partition in the v6 util, the ultra saw the single partition. Everything was straightforward to set-up (using FAT32-EOS4.7). I configured it using the directions posted here:

Hi Soniqfreg, Zero Crossing, Modular 8

I just bought E-MU E4XT Ultra with EOS 4.7.
There was only a floppy drive involved; no internal hard drive! However, everything seems to work. E-MU and these kinds of scsi and hard drive issues are new to me. So I ask the shopping list to get the E-MU in order.
Where can I buy that SCSI2SD v.6? And then will it replace the Ultra floppy disk?
What kind of internal hard drive should I buy?
What kind of old external scsi cd-rom drive? (I have c.20 E-MU library rom.
I use E-MU most to make my own sounds, instruments and soundscapes.




EDIT
I found these; price difference is big.

Yes, the SCSI2SD will replace the floppy if you get the appropriate mounting bracket. You won’t need an internal drive. Just the SCSI2SD. I use a 64gb sd card with my E4XT Ultra and it’s plenty. You can easily swap out banks to your computer.

You need:
SCSI2SD board (whatever version you’d like)
Mounting bracket for the floppy bay
50 pin SCSI cable @ 18” or so.
And a jumper to terminate the floppy (this is ABSOLUTELY crucial)

I bought my SCSI2SD (v5.1) from Inertial Computing for about $80, but there’s always lots for sale on eBay. The SCSI2SD will be powered from the SCSI buss.
It’s really easy to do. Takes longer to open up the E-MU than it does to hook up the SCSI2SD.

Cheers.

Here for the gear
 

I second skipping the internal hard drive. All that adds is noise, heat, and added costs. I bought my v6 scsi2sd and black bracket at Inertial. They’ve been super responsive and helpful. A 64Gb sd card is plenty of space.

The CDRom will take some ebay hunting or borrow from someone who has one. Definitely worth it get those old sampler roms copied onto the SD cards. The nice thing with v4.7 of EOS is that when you format the SD as FAT32, once you copy all your disks on he SD, you can make a digital copy onto your computer in case you need to restore one day. Then sell the ROMs and CD drive to someone else or put them away and never look at them again.
