New Aurora owner.....with a problem

Got my new Aurora today.  Love it!

However, the drive system is SCSI and my old drives withg all of the data I need to transfer are SATA.

Any advice on getting this to work?

Re: New Aurora owner.....with a problem

I'm confused ... Your new Aurora R-4 came with SCSI drives? Are you sure? They should have been SATA.

If they are different, maybe it's your old drives that are either SCSI or more likely ... IDE.

And you're correct.  My old drives are IDE.  One Maxtor Diamond Max 250Gb  and one Maxtor Diamondback 200Gb.

I need the data of of them desperately and have not come up with a way to do so.

Thanks.

Mine are SCSI too.  Same R4, same configuration.  And with these six cores churning, that slow SCSI is really getting in the way!

Looked up the disk drive online:  Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

According to Newegg this is an SATA drive.  Now I'm really confused.

Re: New Aurora owner.....with a problem

Your hard drives aren't SCSI, they're SATA. You can put your old SATA drives in your Aurora, no problem.

If you really want to know why they're showing up as SCSI in W7 I'd suggest you do a Google search and find lots of information about it.

You might want to open the machine and install one before you get too worried.

No, I mean my old drives are IDE.

Re: New Aurora owner.....with a problem

So you don't have an old computer or old IDE external enclosure?

I bought one of these a few years back. Comes in handy for testing drives and data recovery.

Lots of companies sell similar ones.
