Connecting an ST formatted HDD to my PC?

Postby Mugsy » Mon Aug 21, 2017 7:19 pm

Has anyone successfully connected an old ST formatted HDD to a PC?

I still have my old (ancient?) 80MB SCSI hard drive from my ST/STe days full of files (hard to imagine that 80MB was once considered a "tremendous" amount of space) that I'd love to try & recover.

Years ago, I tried plugging the drive into the SCSI adapter on my PC, but BIOS reported the drive as "unformatted" and WinXP refused to detect it at all. I never tried again after that. :cry:

The last time I actually USED the drive was probably around 1994 in the final days of my STe use, so I don't even know if the data is still intact (but I'd love to find out.) :)

I don't have experience myself about the subject, but this should do the job.

Let me know if it worked :)
