80-pin is SCA.  Definitely no SCA disks in there.

The blue ones should be 68-pin, and the beige ones 50-pin.


Like I said though, double-check me :)


Good luck, and have fun!

Ben;

Jbod.  Didn't know what it meant until today.  The computer has 4 SCSI
controllers, the Storageworks is operated in a split configuration.  4
drives are on a RAID controller, the other 3 are on a normal SCSI
controller.

What I was getting at with replacing the disks in the carrier was
exactly what you mentioned; LVD or HVD SCSI.  I don't know what is in
there.  Is it 50 pin or 68 or 80 pin.
