B-Ball

 

 

SCSI-IDE Bridge (a type of adaptor): Use a normal IDE hard disk instead of a SCSI disk. Allows an IDE disk to connect to a SCSI controller. 40 pin IDE to 50 pin or 68 pin SCSI $299

MC1 has hard to obtain SCSI cables, terminators and adaptors* 

SCSI-3

bullet

SCSI-3 68 pin cable, 9 connectors, twisted pair (LVD/SE) $69

bullet

SCSI-3 68 pin cable, 6 connector cable $59

Quality without the price! LVD/SE cables are rated to double (or more) the speed of normal SCSI-3 but remain compatible with SCSI-3 Nb. More cables can be found in the Used Parts section

SCSI-2
bullet

SCSI-2 internal cables with 2 x 50 female connectors $19

bullet

SCSI-2 internal cables 3*50 pin female connectors $25

bullet

SCSI external cable 25 pin male connector to 50 pin male centronics $59 (lesser quality cable $39)

IDE
bullet

IDE ATA-100 high speed Cable, 40 pin with 40 extra ground wires (80 lines in total) $20

bullet

IDE standard 40 pin cable with 3 connectors $10

bullet

Home made A4000 male IDE terminators which turn off your A4000's IDE controller for faster booting when using SCSI $29

 

 

 

MC1 has a lots of hard to get adaptors.

Future proof your Amiga:

bulletUse newer and faster parts on older machines by using our wide range of adaptors. 

Backwards compatibility:

bulletUse old parts on your new Amiga by using our wide range of adaptors.

Flexibility:

bulletDon't buy a new cable. Buy an adaptor to convert your cable e.g. DB 50 cable to DB 25. This is a much more flexible solution.

SCSI-3

Adaptors with termination
bulletFemale to Female Internal 68 pin SCSI-3 to 50 pin IDC Top 8 bits terminated! Stops Signal bounce on unterminated pins. This is recommended for Cyberstorm PPC owners! Connect a SCSI-2 drive to a SCSI-3 cable Normally $99 now just $59
bulletMale to Male Internal 68 pin SCSI-3 to 50 pin IDC Top 8 bits terminated! Stops signal bounce on unterminated pins! This is recommended for CyberstormPPC owners! $99
bulletExternal SCSI-3 68 male to 50 pin female (dense Honda) with active termination (plastic) $99
Nb. Terminated adaptors are almost impossible to get!

Adaptors without termination

bulletInternal 68 pin male SCSI-3 to 50 pin male IDC Connects a newer SCSI-3 drive to an older SCSI-2 50 pin cable $45
bulletInternal 68 pin female SCSI-3 to 50 pin male IDC Connect a SCSI-2 cable to a SCSI-3 cable $45
bulletInternal 68 pin female SCSI-3 to IDC 50 pin female Connect a SCSI-2 device to a SCSI-3 cable $45
bulletExternal 68 pin male SCSI-3 (HP D-sub) to 50 pin female (HP D-sub: dense Honda type connector) $59

SCSI-2

bulletExternal Centronics 50 F to DB25 male $49

Headers:

Allow you to break an internal cable out of the box and give you somewhere to attach an external device (Warp and Cyberstorm users!)

bullet50 pin IDC male internal to 50 pin female (dense Honda 50) external $45
bullet50 pin IDC male internal to DB 25 female external $45

Gender benders

bulletCentronics 50 Female to Female $49 
bulletDB 25 male to DB 25 Male SCSI $19
bulletDB 25 Female to DB25 Female SCSI $19

SCART adaptor
bullet

21 pin SCART plug, input/output switch, 1x 4 pin S-VHS input, stereo sound and video RCA connectors (for 1081 & some 1084 monitors) $39 

IDE

bullet3.5" to 2.5" hard drive adaptors (with power connector): plastic construction which protects against shorting $39

Use these to convert your 2.5" hard drive in your A1200 to a 3.5"
Transfer info from a 2.5" hard drive to a 3.5" HD on larger Amigas

NB. IDC 50 refers to the standard ribbon cable that is used for 3.5" SCSI hard drives. More adaptors are to be found in Used Parts.

 

 

SCSI-3

bullet

Terminator SCSI-3 - active LVD/SE* 68 pin internal with 2 or 3 trouble shooting LED's (power/LVD/SE) Female connector $59

*LVD/SE terminators are used: the LVD/SE cables are rated to 2x the speed of SCSI-3 but remain compatible with SCSI-3.

SCSI-2
bulletDB 25 pin terminator with both male and female ends (passive) $39
bulletCentronics 50 Male terminators (passive) $19
bulletCentronics 50 Male terminators (active) $49
bulletInternal 50 pin IDC with both male & female ends (passive) plastic $39
bulletInternal 50 pin IDC with both male & female ends (active) plastic $49

 

Hard drives (non-removable)

SCSI-2 or 3 3.5" (50 or 68 pin) hard drive various sizes $POA  

various sizes 2.5" (A1200) drives $POA

Nb. More drives can be found in Used Parts

bullet3-5 yrs warranty on most IDE drives

Information

bulletSCSI-2 devices require a PASSIVE terminator on each end of the chain
bulletThe SCSI-3 chain must have an ACTIVE terminator on each end of the cable 
bulletSCSI-3 drives can be used on SCSI-2 systems with a 50->68 pin internal adaptor (future proofing + they tend to be faster)
